Rheinmetall has won a three-year, $11 million contract to supply German Police with ballistic inserts for protective vests.

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

The inserts are light in weight and can withstand shots fired from an AK-47 assault rifle. Law enforcement officers who find themselves in complex, life-threatening situations are therefore well protected and will able to manoeuvre easily, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
