This product offers defense against jet-propelled grenades PG-7V and PG-9V with monoblock cumulative warheads at angles of 90 degrees. Furthermore, it provides protection against FPV warheads with similar grenades diving at angles ranging from 35 to 90 degrees.

At dive angles below 35 degrees, the canopy also guarantees protection against rocket-propelled grenades, as well as ATGMs equipped with tandem cumulative warheads.
