  • ARL is developing model methodology to provide for most survivable combat vehicle

    April 02, 2013

    In order to protect Soldiers' lives, military vehicles in combat must be capable of surviving severe hostile fires. When hit with large hostile fire weapons, internally stowed ammunition may react resulting in catastrophic loss of life and system. The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL), then the Ballistics Research Laboratory (BRL), developed effective ammunition...
