QinetiQ will supply Q-Net textile armor to protect against RPGs on M-ATV US Army

QinetiQ will supply Q-Net textile armor to protect against RPGs on M-ATV US ArmyThe American division of QinetiQ North America (QNA) of the British company QinetiQ has contracted to supply its textile Q-Net armor, which increases protection against RPG grenade launchers, for hanging it on board the off-road M-ATV mine and ambush defense vehicles USA.


Under a contract worth 18,3 million, the company will upgrade the RPG protection on the newly acquired M-ATV army, replacing them with the original additional protection kit that was produced and delivered from 2009 to 2011 for more than 7500 machines.

Executive Vice President and General Manager of QinetiQ North America Technology Solutions, Andy Rogers, said that Q-Net provides easy, easy-to-install, excellent protection against RPG attacks.

"The US military continues to demonstrate its confidence in both M-ATV and Q-Net, and we are proud to provide our fighters with this important RPG protection system," said Rogers.

Easily adaptable to various platforms, Q-Net is an ultra-light and affordable set of additional reservations designed to protect military armored vehicles against RPG attacks on the battlefield.

Able to withstand multiple hits, the system is similar in characteristics to other additional armor systems, such as lattice armor, but cheaper than them, and also 50-60% lighter, which allows it to be installed on lightweight machines that cannot be carried on steel lattice armor For example, HMMWV.

Machines protected by Q-Net, including the Hummers, RG-31, M-ATV, can perform their standard functions for which they were designed, without overloading overweight, which leads to a high risk of overturning, wear and tear of all-machine systems and excessive fuel consumption.

The Q-Net system has been widely used by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past few years. Manufactured by the American company Oshkosh, the M-ATV has the high survivability and off-road mobility necessary for these harsh conditions.

        I just wonder how to get out of such a mosquito net during a fight?
        Or they have only one way out, give the fray, and then call the aviation, they say we are there .. if you fly, figure it out, does it happen? )))

          The same question immediately arose. Doesn’t she close the review? And trying to book a hummer is the same as using ravings as a BMP. When was the last time the Americans really fought?

        From the clip it’s not at all clear that this zoo on wheels is protected from RPG hits! The pack will not show real tests I will not believe

        But why in the picture, PATRIA AMV, or rather its Polish version. Rosomak BTR.
        And the Oshkosh M-ATV, with Q-Net textile armor, looks like this.

    Hang on, do not hang, anyway it will not save from the RPG-7 with a tandem charge, and this is the most common grenade launcher in Asia and the Middle East.

    And why the money is small, we go and "noble persons" in houses for such a cost to live zap..lo. I think the effect will pay off, Americans will not spend money just like that. Kapitaltzm understand ...

    People, you are confusing mesh protection like "a piece of fence on the side" with the one about which we are talking in the article
    the system is similar in characteristics to other additional armor systems, such as trellised armor, but cheaper than them,
    it's just armor made of synthetic fibers such as Kevlar. But there is a better solution, for example ceramic protection

        It just goes often, combining both ceramics and textile armor.
        Now there are purely steel screens, they do not use armored vehicles to enhance the reservation.
        Virtually no use.

    Undermining not even the RPG-7 tandem grenade on this grid is likely to hit a lightly armored vehicle. Not to mention the fact that no one canceled the BZT and the 12,7mm caliber :)
    It seems that again someone heats up the "taxpayers" by selling a "mosquito" for the price of "double-glazed windows" :)

    Here, they scared Texas sheep. Put on the grenade a divider, three or four pointed crests, like arrows, and let them further wrap themselves in their textiles. I do not file a patent, I post it for general use. :)

      Nonsense. The problem is not to overcome the "rag". The problem is that the fuse is fired at a distance from the "armor". To put a retarder during the "cutting" of the mesh? And if there is no grid? What will happen? Right! Detoning a grenade at a distance from the target after a ricochet ...
      I watched this in real life. I don’t know the reasons (marriage, inappropriate storage, expired storage period). But the undermining of the warhead shot occurred many tens of meters from the target. As a rule, it is high in the sky (ricocheting off the target’s armor).

        The grid will be cut instantly when passing a grenade. And the meaning of their (supposedly not tearing and braking) grid is exactly what you wrote about

          Physics cannot be fooled. When meeting with an obstacle, the PG will detonate. I'm not even talking about how problematic it is to "attach" some automatically opening knives to the shot ... And even if, how they will affect the trajectory of the PG, given the disturbed balance (trim on the nose), increased weight and windage ...

    They initially go to this and they have a flag from a mattress. And why leave it, it is completely, completely protected.

    Oh, what are you saying. Their armor is really capable of protecting against RPG shots, oddly enough, otherwise such multi-million dollar contracts would not have been concluded. In addition, how much are our armored vehicles protected from American grenade launchers? Most likely in any way, if not counting the standard protection from steel sheet. Before mocking the achievements of another nation, mock the realities of our day in your nation.

    And what did you want, for many centuries the protection of soldiers, guns was passive. And despite the progress in the field of materials science, the principle has remained the same. Or do you expect force field generators from them. In vain, my friend, their realization, God forbid, would be realized at the end of this century.

    Do you think the Americans are completely stupid? Creating such a thing, you think they didn’t test all this on tests? Is it difficult for the Americans to get the RPG-7 and the shots to it?
    The position of some members of the forum is simply surprising. Once something American, it means garbage.
    This is an unprofessional approach and is designed for rating advantages of hurray patriots!
