Bulletproof protection corresponds to the fourth level. The vehicle’s armor is a composite armor consisting of layers of ceramics and steel protecting against 14.5×114 mm armor-piercing shells, and also a bulletproof glass 128.5-129.0 mm thick with a transparency of 70%. The armor withstands 30-mm armor-piercing rounds. The vehicle has 16.00R20 bullet-proof tires with blast-resistant inserts, an automatic air pump and pressure regulated to 4.5 atmospheres. The armored module has loopholes through which small arms may be fired, and also a remotely controlled machine gun can be installed on it. The seats are equipped with holders for personal weapons, seat belts and head restraints. They are attached to the roof of the module in order to reduce injuries from bomb and landmine blasts.
