Custom and integrated KAVRO body armour

Modern-day warfare conditions and operation strategies have evolved. They incorporate new tactics which require additional situational awareness. A modern soldier is equipped with an integrated set of high technology equipment and uniforms. Their communication systems are linked to a variety of real-time and archived battlefield information resources.

Besides the technology, equipment and uniforms, field conditions have also evolved over the years for modern soldiers. MKU offers custom design and development of Kavro body armour as per the requirements of its customer.

Kavro Body armour customization encompasses:

  • Design customisation
  • Protection & threat levels
  • Device intergration

Ballistic Resistance of Kavro Body Armor NIJ Standard 0101.06 establishes minimum performance requirements and test methods for the ballistic resistance of individual body armor designed to protect the fuselage against gunfire and MKU provides NIJ 0101.06 certification by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the USA for a range of Advanced Soft Armor and Hard Armor panel configurations. These panels exhibit superior durability, safety and reliability even after prolonged use and are available with a prolonged warranty.

Ergonomics and agility

MKU’s advanced Kavro body armours are comfortable and easy to wear over a long period of time. It allows freedom of movement, agility and awareness to the soldier and provides optimum protection in extreme conditions and climates. It also integrates seamlessly with the mission-critical equipment required of a modern soldier.

Torso protection

Kavro Body armour is one of the most important protection gears of a soldier. Body Armour is the outermost piece of the protective shield a soldier wears over his torso to avoid lethal injuries to the crucial parts of the body. Today’s combat scenarios demand more agile and flexible armour and that’s why MKU’s body armour is made of high-performance materials in heterogeneous combinations. It broadly comprises an outer carrier, soft armour and hard armour to provide protection against various threats, including handgun ammunition, rifle ammunition, fragments, stab, etc. additionally, critical areas like the groin, neck, shoulders and sides can also be protected with additional ballistic attachments to regular body armour.

ILDS – Insta Load Distribution System

Smart weight management system for tactical vests

Depending upon the operational requirements, or his role in a mission, a soldier carries a load of around 30-40 kg on him (body armour, combat weapon, ammunition, other required gear, electronics, and power packs). For cold weather soldiers, specialised soldiers, or soldiers on longer duration missions, the weight could go up substantially higher.

Kavro ILDS or the Kavro Insta Load Distribution System is a smart add-on for tactical vests that manage and redistributes a soldier’s carried load. It lifts the weight of the carried load from the soldier’s shoulder, back and spine and redistributes it to his hips and legs resulting in extreme comfort, greater mobility and substantially enhanced endurance. The Kavro ILDS enables soldiers to carry their loads much more easily, or more load, as easily, without hindering his range of motions in any tactical situation.

Made of high-quality composites, the smart design of the ILD S allows one universal size to fit all size and height combinations. It is detachable and seamlessly compatible with h Kavro’s quick release over-vests.

The Insta Load Distribution System comprises of 2 components, a smart load distribution assembly (SLDA) which attaches to the rear of a Kavro ‘MOLLE’ compatible vest vest via pouch, and a ‘Smart Belt’ with a load-bearing gear to accommodate and operate the system.
