America to cage its armoured vehicles

LRODed MRAP LRODed MRAP.

BAE Systems has recently developed a new product for the Army and Marine Corps MRAP fleet called the Lightweight RPG Protection Kit, or LROD. Presumably, from now on any US vehicle that is supposed to protect troops against powerful roadside bombs will wear a cage around it for RPG protection.

LROD is a lightweight, modular bar-armor system composed of an aluminium alloy that provides protection against RPGs without compromising the operational capabilities of the vehicle. Weighing less than half of comparable steel designs, LROD bolts onto the vehicle without welding or cutting, and can be repaired in the field. The Army has expressed interest in procuring additional kits for the entire RG31 and RG31A1 fleet. The RG31 was developed by BAE Systems in South Africa.

“The LROD system provides lightweight, low-cost RPG protection that is easily adapted to virtually any armored vehicle,” said Dr. Jim Galambos, director of business development for BAE Systems’ Advanced Technologies.
