ARMOUR PROTECTION
 
     
 
SUMMARY
 
     
          Armour protection is confined to 14 mm (.55") thick splinter protection on both sides of the bridge, extending from the bridge deck to the top of the bulwark.  
          Material is tentatively identified as Waho/Mo, a special steel.  
          The ballistic properties of the steel, if not already determined from other sources, would be of interest, but the protection is not otherwise unusual.
