IBD Evolution Kit, new balanced Survivability Concept for main battle tank Leopard 2A4.
 
 
With the Evolution Kit, IBD now has introduced a new balanced Survivability Concept for tanks that achieved unprecedented levels of protection for legacy platforms. The focal point of the Concept is the synergistic integration of the different High-Tech solutions developed by the German Company IBD. The different parts of the add-on protection kit for the heavy platform - Leopard 2A4 - allow the rather old legacy platform to be used with minimized risk in Urban - Missions - situations with specifically high threat potential. The high cost efficiency for the System is brought about the application of the proven High-Tech AMAP technologies, in add-on integration without major changes of the platform itself.

With the introduction of the Survivability Concept for the Leopard 2A4 Evolution, IBD has developed a general add-on armor concept, applicable for any platform as an effective and balanced high-tech solution. The intelligent synergistic effects of the different AMAP-technologies provide the best possible protection concept, considering also topics as overall costs, lead times for upgrade without change of the platform and added weight, to achieve balanced and optimized solutions.

For the Leopard 2A4 Evolution, with a total weight of only 60 tons - compared to 56.6 tons in the original configuration - this mean that the platform is still providing a very high tactical mobility in order to perform the necessary tasks. Thereby it is possible to upgrade a legacy platform with the AMAP-technologies and at the same time create a new concept to meet the need for all-round protection against the evolving threats.
