According to the developers, the main difference between their systems and other KAZs is the small size of the striking elements that are fired towards the anti-tank missile. In addition to this, the complex itself is located at the top of the armored vehicle, and the menacing projectile is intercepted at the very last moment. This reduces the scatter area of the striking elements. Because of this, ADS is less dangerous for soldiers who may be near an armored vehicle at the time of its shelling.
Rheinmetall specialists are confident that their active protection complex can be installed on any armored vehicle. Depending on the modification, the mass of KAZ can vary from 145 to 600 kg.
Recall that the latest Russian T-14 tank on the Armata platform also received an active defense system. However, by far the only a tank in the world on which KAZ is serially installed, is the Israeli Merkava MK4.
