Kroko Tactical M-4017 HYBRID CARRIER

Serving the Armed Forces, Special Forces & Police

Kroko Tactical presented its products and solutions at IWA OutdoorClassics 2018 in Nuremberg. Serving the Croatian Armed Forces, Croatian police, manufacturing more than 300 of their own product designs, developing and offering new solutions of apparel, tactical and ballistic equipment, camouflage patterns, backpacks, holsters, belts and other specialised equipment, the company has made quite an impact for themselves. “We are proudly outfitting Croatian Armed Forces as well Police, Customs and various other forces within the MOD and Ministry of Interior,” a company executive stated. “Apart from that, we are supplying Swiss Federal Police, we have outfitted the complete Armed Forces of Monte Negro, as well as Indonesian Special Forces, Kosovo Security Force, German Federal Police and Portuguese Armed Forces in recent time.” 

The M-4017 Hybrid Carrier, aka Assaulters Ballistic Carrier, is a modern body armour system that has a multi-platform modular design. It offers a wide range of operational configurations and allows full customisation by the user depending on the environment, threat and mission. The vest can be equipped both with soft armour (up to level IIIA) and/or hard armour plates, provided by Point Blank Enterprises

It is produced using genuine Invista CORDURA fabric with an additional layer of Teijin TWARON LFT-AT-FLEX, enhancing the ballistic attributes of armour within the vest and providing structural stability. Padded spacer mesh cushions are used internally for comfort. “We teamed up with Teijin Company, them having supported us with their ballistic fabric solutions for years,” the company states. “We now found a new application for one of their amazing products: Twaron LFT-AT FLEX.”

LFT-AT FLEX is a material permitting an effective reduction of the impact depth. It is made out of CURV (by Propex Fabrics), and extraordinary hit-resistant polypropylene woven surface, combined with TWARON CT 707 high-tenacity fabric. This material is light, thin and has the sufficient flexibility to reduce blunt trauma behind the ballistic pack.

Depending on the bullet and its speed, one or two layers of LFT-AT FLEX may lessen the trauma signature by 30%-60% even near the edges of the target. One layer is usually packed inside the ballistic package, while the other is placed between the ballistic package and the user’s body,” the company continues. “This additional layer is formed around the inner cushioning part of the vest that is placed directly onto user’s body, to provide even more blunt force trauma reduction. In addition, this outer layer of LFT-AT FLEX provides structural stability of the vest/plate carrier/combat MOLLE belt used as a tactical vest/belt with no ballistic protection. LFT-AT FLEX is also used in a strategic position for other products, such as backpacks, in areas that require extreme abrasion resistance and sturdiness. Adding only a few hundred grams per square metre, TWARON LFT-AT FLEX offers an optimum combination of weight, volume and performance currently available.”

The back of the M-4017 features a WDB system that transfers load from the shoulders and back to the users hip-region. The side cummerbund is fully stripped, allowing the user to attach different pouch options. 

WDB (Weight Distribution Bars) is the second part of our WDS (Weight Distribution System),” the company official informs. “The whole system consists of WDA (Weight Distribution Adapter) and WDB which allow full range body movement together with the shift of substantial amount of weight that’s being distributed from upper body to the hips. Both M-4017 and WDS are currently in late development phase and are scheduled to be distributed to end-users for testing.”

Kroko is a Croatia based company that has been manufacturing military and law-enforcement equipment for more than 27 years. “We have our own R&D department, and our overall focus is on Research, Innovation, Development, and Enhancement – or as we like to say –  that’s our RIDE,” he concludes.
