As the requirement for aircraft to operate within hostile and combat environments increases, there is a growing need to provide lightweight ballistic protection for aircrew to ensure survivability and mission success without compromising operational capability.
The enhanced threat from light ground-to-air small arms fire is proving to be the greatest challenge for many operators deployed within these zones, making the protection of flight crew and critical aircraft systems vital to mission effectiveness.
Building upon the proven and trusted brand of LAST Armor®, Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has partnered with QinetiQ to certify and deliver LAST Armor LWA, the lightest version of LAST Armor currently on the market.
This exclusive agreement with QinetiQ enables Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group to market, sell and install the latest generation of lightweight armour on the C-130 Hercules platform.
As the longest-serving Hercules Service Centre for Legacy C-130 models and Heavy Maintenance Centre for the C-130J model, our partnership with QinetiQ reinforces Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group’s purpose of protecting people in critical situations.
