Scientific paper. International Journal of Computer Technology and Applications. Vol 3 (4), July-August 2012, 1450-1454 pp.A combat vehicle is a self-propelled weapon platform. Light Weight and high performance are the key factors for the design of a combat vehicle. Most of the weight is distributed to structural armour purposes. Rolled Homogenous Armour (RHA) steel and composite armour played a dominant role to counter these threats. But the threat to the combat vehicles has increased manifold due to advancement in weapon technologies and there is a necessity of protecting the vehicles from these threats. The protections by means of RHA steel will lead to increase in weight, which affects the mobility of the vehicle. Hence there is a need to adopt active protection technologies to effectively counter the incoming anti-tank threats/ ammunitions before hitting the vehicle thereby enhancing its survivability. This paper highlights the current trends and future requirement in the field of Active Protection technologies.Contents: Introduction. Armour vehicle design philosophy.
