Tarian technology has been developed in response to a requirement from the military for a lightweight, higher performance and more robust alternative to traditional, heavy, metal bar armour RPG protection systems. The core element of the Tarian RPG defeat mechanism is an extremely strong textile net manufactured from high-tenacity fibres. Tarian nets are attached to vehicles using innovative flexible mounts that enable the system to withstand harsh vehicle operating conditions without sustaining damage. Compared with traditional bar armour RPG protection, Tarian provides improved protection performance and, being significantly lighter, enables vehicles to operate more efficiently.

Neal McKeever, Sales & Marketing Director at AmSafe Bridport Ltd, said: “AmSafe Bridport is delighted to be showing Tarian at IDEX for the first time. The development work that we have undertaken with FNSS to showcase Tarian on the PARS 6x6 vehicle demonstrates the adaptability of Tarian to fit a wide variety of vehicle types. The cooperative relationship that AmSafe has developed with FNSS has successfully created an integrated RGP protection system to FNSS’s platform.”

On 7 February 2013, AmSafe Bridport Ltd announced that it has secured a contract to supply Tarian RPG armour systems to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). The contract award followed an international competition where Tarian was one of three solutions down-selected for a programme of rigorous testing and trials, including live firing and vehicle field trials. This latest contract includes the supply of several hundred Tarian RPG armour system kits for a variety of vehicle types that are currently in service in Afghanistan. The contract is valued at £10.6m ($17m) and will be completed by the end of 2013.

The PARS is a wheeled armoured personnel carrier family with 6×6, and 8×8 versions, developed, designed and manufactured by FNSS Defence Company of Turkey. With the PARS, FNSS has developed a new generation of Wheeled Armored Combat Vehicles in 6x6 and 8x8 configurations with a special emphasis on mobility, protection, payload and growth potential.
