MKU Managing Director Neeraj Gupta said: “The Kavro Body Armour System is designed to help soldiers retain energy and reduce fatigue toward enabling them to carry out missions confidently and with greater comfort, mobility, endurance and survivability. It addresses real-life challenges that soldiers face, where they have to carry a lot of equipment, both standard and special issue such as heavy weapons, tactical devices, battery packs and ammunition that collectively can weigh 30kg to 60kg. Such heavy load significantly hampers their agility and ability to maneuver and hinders their operational efficiency at the same time causes exhaustion.”
The Kavro Body Armour System consists of an integrated rucksack, the Insta Load Distribution System (ILDS), quick release system, a laser cut molle system and a hydration pack.
The Kavro rucksack ranges from 30kg to 60kg in capacity and can be easily attached, mounted and managed.
The ILDS is an upper body exo system that manages the weight carried by the soldier by lifting it off the shoulder, back and spine and redistributing it to the hips and legs for greater mobility and endurance.
MKU’s patented quick release system, enables the soldier to easily divest of the entire system or its components. The extremely versatile laser cut molle system combines rugged, laser cut, webbing and special tactical pouches on the over vest platform for better organization of equipment. The smart hydration pack features a water pouch and a hose that allows the soldier to drink water handsfree even during combat.
All these components are smartly designed to work with each other to enhance the efficiency of today’s modern soldier.
