New Protective Vest Inserts for German Federal Police

Rheinmetall to supply Bundespolizei with ballistic inserts for protective vests

Rheinmetall won a framework agreement, lasting 36 months and is worth a total of around €10 million, to supply German Federal Police (BPol) with ballistic inserts for protective vests.

A first batch consisting of over 5,000 ballistic inserts, worth approx. €1 million, will be shipped in spring 2019. The contract encompasses an option for the supply of an additional 36,000 inserts.

Developed and produced by Rheinmetall Ballistic Protection in Krefeld, Germany, the inserts exploit the latest technology in order to achieve high protection at the lowest possible weight. Among the lightest of their kind, these inserts withstand shots fired from an AK-47 assault rifle. As a result, law enforcement officers who find themselves in complex, life-threatening situations are not only well protected, but able to manoeuvre easily as well.
