Ballistic specification:

The armoring of the car follows the principle of “The Shell-in-The Shell” integrated protection based on many years of experience in building special protected vehicles based on different make/models of sedans and SUVs and other types of the cars.

The strong protective system of the car has immediately met all the personal protection requirements of the relevant authorities in Germany and EU, and are the vehicle to have been comprehensively certificated for ballistic protection in resistance class in accordance with VPAM BRV2009 (Bullet Resistant Vehicles) and for blast protection in resistance class ERV2010 (Explosive Resistance Vehicles).

Where explosive charges are concerned, the car has demonstrated its protective capabilities by meeting the requirements of ERV2010 and the Federal Office of Criminal Investigation. Innovative under body armoring almost entirely covers the under body for the first time, a unique feature in the civilian special protection segment.

BRV 2009 specifies much stricter requirements than BRV1999: the main difference between these guidelines is that according to BRV1999 a vehicle can be shot at 45° or 90° only. According to VPAM BRV2009 the vehicle can be shot at ANY angle, which makes it much more challenging, but on the other hand much closer to the real life.

Also the new standard ERV2010 increased the requirements for the protection against side blasts – originally the requirement was to sustain a blast of 15 kg TNT from a distance of 4 m. The charge was put on the ground level.

The new requirement prescribes the detonation of the same amount of TNT,15 kg.







The VR rating is in essence developed by the agency called the VPAM which is the top rated agency for testing of armored vehicles

VPAM stands for Vereinigung der Prufstellen fur Angriffshernmede Materialien und Konstruktionen (Association of Anti-Attack Materials and Constructions). 

VPAM is founded in 1999, it  is a group of armored vehicle testing sites based throughout Europe who have developed their own standards for Civillian Armored Vehicles (CAV) and Armored Cars (CAC).  The number of standards set out by VPAM almost justifies a page of it’s own dedicated to it, however the one common factor across all of their standards is the level designation of VR, Vehicle Resistance.

VPAM APR 2006, 31.08.2016 - This is the General Test Directive which covers the basic ballistic testing and the conformity of materials and structures.

VPAM PM 2007, Edition 3, 15.03.2021 - The PM standard is a testing procedure and standard (in addition to the APR2006) for the materials used in the construction of an Armoured Car, such as the ballistic metal and ballistic glass, similar to the BR and FB certification standards.

VPAM BRV 1999 - An acronym for Bullet Resistant Vehicle, this is VPAM’s original testing certification, released in 1999, it was innovative in that it required the whole vehicle to be tested, rather than simply testing the materials used and supplying guidelines to the construction of the vehicle as per other armouring standards.

VPAM BRV 2009, Edition 3, 15.03.2021 - A development on the previous BRV 1999 standard, the 2009 standard introduced more real world testing scenarios stipulating multiple hit angles as opposed to the 1999 standard’s 2 (45 degree and 90 degree).  It is worth noting that the levels are not comparable between the 1999 standard and the 2009 standard, for example, the ammunition and rifle protected against for VR7 1999 would be VR9 in the BRV 2009 standard.

VPAM ERV 2010, Edition 3, 22.06.2021 - ERV - Explosive Resistant Vehicle 2010 standard was introduced specifically to address blast protection Detonation of 15kg TNT from 2m at a high of 1m from the side of the vehicle.

This standard can be requested from the VPAM testing centres or the VPAM office where there is a justified need. The details and testing scenarios are therefore not freely available.Under the ERV2010 standard, DM51, HG85 and RGD5 hand grenades as well as DM31 AP mines among others are subjected to testing. Tests are additionally performed using thrown missile detonations, so-called IEDs, simulating a car bomb, are tested. 



GOST P50963-96  - Protection armored special cars. General technical requirements.

This standard extends on armored protection of the cars intended for transportation of people, money, valuable and especially dangerous loads, the providing protection of life and human health, safety of values and safety of especially dangerous loads against influence of means of defeat.

The standard establishes the general technical requirements to armored protection of the cars of domestic and foreign production intended for operation in the Russian Federation

VSAG VS6 2012 – Vehicle Security Advisory Group is a UK based QinetiQ Ltd. organisation which has set out various standards approved by the BSI (British Standards Institution) for the design, manufacture, development and testing of armored cars and vehicles. The current highest level in their standards is VSAG-15.

PAS 300:2015 - Ballistic and Blast Testing for Civilian Armoured vehicles (CAV).Test methods for ballistic and blast protection.It defines test levels for ballistic impact (including handgun, shotgun and rifle) and blast resistance for side blast, under vehicle blast and roof blast. As part of the ballistic test it also includes fragment simulating projectile tests.The four test methods described by this PAS are based on the work of the Vehicle Security Advisory Group (VSAG) and are designed to meet the needs of both the European and international markets.

NIJ-0108-01 - National Institute for Justice standard covers not only vehicles but body protection as well, covering 5 levels from 9mm handgun to rifle ammunition.

STANAG AEP55 (level) - is a NATO armoring standard dictating protection levels for occupants of logistic and light armored vehicles stipulating protection from ballistic, artillery and IED blasts.  This is a military standard covering 5 levels and is unlikely to be seen in an armored car used by civilians.

Aside from the existing ballistic resistance levels, other detonation classes also exist that are designed to protect our customers from attacks involving hand grenades, land mines and IEDs (self-constructed car bombs). Our armored civilian vehicles also offer protection from these threat levels and have been certified accordingly.

To counteract the rise in threat levels across the globe, some vehicles have even been tested and successfully certified for larger-scale detonation classes that go beyond those required by the standard.

STANAG 4569: Protection Levels for Occupants of Logistic and Light Armoured Vehicles.

VSAG-12: Ballistic and Blast Testing for Civilian Armoured Vehicles (CAV).

VPAM ERV (2010): Detonation of 15kg TNT from 2m at a high of 1m from the side of the vehicle.


The specialized laboratory tests and certifies armoured civilian and military vehicles as well as platforms. Our special competence is characterised by the combination of ballistic and blast tests with corresponding equipment, such as measurement tools, high-speed video cameras, crash test dummies and pressure sensors. These tests can be performed in accordance with STANAG, VPAM or customer specified standards.

Testing of vehicles and surfaces: Ballistic tests up to 30 mm calibres in accordance with

• VPAM BRV 1999/2009

• STANAG 4569 AEP-55 Volume 1

Hand grenade, fragmentation charge and blast testing in accordance with VPAM ERV 2010

• Underbelly testing of the vehicle

• Testing of the vehicle roof

• Road side blast testing of the vehicle

Mine blast and IED testing in accordance with STANAG 4569

• Underbelly and under wheel/track testing

• Improvised Explosive Device (IED), road-side and underbelly

• Testing in accordance to STANAG 4569 AEP-55 Volume 2 und Volume 3


The specialized tests centers offers full services for ballistic tests and qualifications of materials, various components, bulletproof glass, protected vehicles, infrastructure segments as well as ballistic protective vests.  In doing so, all sample sizes are freely selectable.

We conduct tests according to national and international standards, such as STANAG 4569 AEP-55, Volume 1 (Level 1-6) or VPAM APR 2006, as well as customer specific requirements.

Various diagnostic methods, like measuring the yaw angle or residual velocity with high-speed videos, provide ideal possibilities for analysing test results. Apart from that, further customer-specific diagnostic options can be integrated.


The specialized tests centers in the different types of the tests provides all of them  in accordance with national and international standards (e.g. STANAG 2280, ASTM F1642, ISO 16933).

To improve the level of protection we test and qualify materials, components, subsystems and overall systems (e.g. facades, windows, doors, automated teller machines (ATM), military components).

These tests can be carried out using particularly developed test rigs.

Ammunition and test charges for conventional and improvised threats (IED) include, among other things:

• KE (projectiles)

• AT-Mines

• Hand grenades

• Blast

• Shell fragments

• EFP (explosively formed projectiles)

• CE (shaped charges)

Through the direct participation in the Teams of Expert (ToE) of STANAG 4569 and 4686 the specialized laboratories are  involved in the development of procedures for tests and qualifications in an international context.
