DND Beefing Up LAV II’s Belly Armour
As the Taliban work at finding ways to make IEDs deadlier (more on that from Afghanistan Conflict Monitor here, CanWest News Service here, and the BBC here), this pops out at me from Canada’s public tendering web page MERX:
This requirement is for the Department of National Defence (DND) to procure Belly Armour Kits (BAK) which will provide enhanced armour protection to the LAV II fleet of vehicles, including the Coyote and Bison armoured vehicle. The kit will be installed on the LAV II armoured vehicles deployed in operational theatres where the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and mine threats are considered high.
A PDF of the public posting is available here – with nothing of intrigue to help the bad guys, by the way.
Good to see.
