Aerotron Brazil says it has chosen TenCate Advanced Armour as its technical and industrial partner and the supplier of the materials and special processes.
Aerotron Brazil and TenCate Advanced Armour say they are working closely together to finalise the design and to build the prototypes of the ballistic protection according to the schedule, weight and performance requirements for the Embraer KC-390 programme.
The KC-390 is the largest airplane ever conceived and built by the Brazilian aeronautics industry and will establish a new standard for medium-sized military transport aircraft, in terms of performance and payload, as well as advance mission and flight systems. It is to perform aerial refueling, transport cargo and troops, and to receive fuel in-flight. The KC-390 will be able to transport up to 23 metric tons of cargo, including wheeled armored vehicles.
The potential market for the KC-390 is according to Embraer approximately 700 aircraft and so far letters of intent for 60 aircraft have been signed by 6 different countries. Financial details will not be published.
