Armoured truck cabs
Åkers Krutbruk’s fourth generation Scania armoured truck cab won the most prestigious award for "Best New Armoured Vehicle 2009" at the defence industry Light & Medium Armoured Vehicles conference in London, England. Our unique add-on armour concept is adapted for use in Scania Trucks to ensure optimal crew safety.
Bomb and IED-protective truck cabs
The armoured cab concept is constructed from the inside where large modular panels overlap and support each other, which serves to protect against the lethal ricochet and spalling effect IED strikes cause within confined vehicles. Subsequently, the Scania armoured cab offers a very high protection level against roadside bombs and IEDs, which inflict casualties primarily through fragmentation and shrapnel damage.
Multi-spectrum armoured protection for light, medium and heavy fighting vehicles
We develop new protection technologies that shield light, medium and heavy vehicle platforms against the full spectrum of military threats. Our ability to develop and adapt cutting-edge technologies to suit the needs of our customers makes us an ideal technical partner. We have built strong relationships with our customers because we remain at the forefront in the development of life-saving technologies.

We will work with you on every step of the process so you know you are getting exactly what you need to ensure the safety of your personnel.
