MAA applies ballistic and explosive protection to 100% of the passenger cockpit as well as the fuel tank, and vital areas of the engine compartment. Additional upgrades are applied to other areas of the vehicle armor process to enhance the maneuverability, durability and safety of the protected vehicle. Success is defined by a combination of complete ballistic protection and aesthetic appearance.
Curved bullet-resistant transparent armor is installed in all glass areas of car to defeat ballistic impacts.
Roof, floor, doors, pillar posts, side panels, kick-panels and firewall, are armored using a combination of ballistic steel and light weight composite materials (e.g. Dyneema, Spectra shield, Kevlar) in accordance with the ballistic standard level of defeat.
Ballistic steel overlaps are used around all windows in the passenger cockpit to protect against ballistic penetration.
