The Israeli company Plasan is partnering with Hanwha Defense Australia to deliver a comprehensive survivability package for the Australian Redback infantry fighting vehicles.

Plasan is responsible for the Redback’s overall survivability and played a significant role in transforming Hanwha’s original K21 design into the Australian Redback. The Redback’s is designed to defeat the highest threats, including mine blasts, kinetic impacts, top attacks, and others.

The protection design of the Redback is the result of collaboration between Plasan and both Hanwha Aerospace, responsible for the hull protection design, and Elbit Systems, responsible for the turret protection design.
