Abstract:

This brief will consider logistic and light armored vehicles since medium and heavy combat vehicles are more easily able to have mine protection due to heir massive structure. Mine protection is a minor but important part of their original design. It is not particularly efficient or interesting, but it is there. This brief only considers protection of the occupant from mine effects. Protection of vehicle function or reparability is not a high priority.
