Soft Armour

Saab’s Soft Armour system offers protection against ballistic penetration up to NATO 7.62 mm AP ammunition (STANAG level III). The system is a box concept making it possible to fit to any vehicle or structure prior to mission, or even retrofit to existing structure in theatre.


The Modular Soft Armour protection system has several areas of use. It can be integrated with any type of structure and can be fitted onto existing structures or vehicles requiring additional protection. The system can also be used as a stand-alone. The modularity of the system is granted by using panels that are easily joined together with standard tools; ceramic filling is added after construction of the panel boxes.

High performance

With a weight of 180 kg/m² and a thickness of 120 mm, the system protects against bursts of 7.62*51 AP ammunition (equivalent to STANAG level III). The Saab Modular Soft Armour also protects against most fragmentation on the battlefield.


The modularity of the system enables transport in different collies to optimise weight, space and bulk to existing transport capabilities.


The protection level of the Modular Soft Armour system ~180 kg/m² can be compared with concrete 500 kg/m² and RHA 200 kg/m².
