Israel’s Plasan Sasa, a supplier of ballistic armor products, has been awarded a contract as a subcontractor for Permali Gloucester, the Royal Air Force’s sole source supplier for armor projects. This contract, valued at several million dollars, is a follow-on to a previous award made in 2003. Plasan will supply ballistic protection upgrade kits and all accessories required for installation in cabin and cockpit floors and walls of the RAF’s Chinook helicopters. Deliveries began in June and will continue through September 2006. An additional order is expected in 2007.

Plasan Sasa also provides ballistic armor kits for several types of tactical transport, assault and cargo helicopters–including the Black Hawk, Bell models and Super Puma–as well as applications for tactical transport and cargo aircraft such as the Hercules C-130.
