1. INTRODUCTION
This document provides the Installation Instructions for the Armor Crew Protection Kit (CPK, or
the Kit) for the Palletized Loading System (PLS) vehicle. This Kit, which was manufactured by
Simula Aerospace and Defense Group, Inc. (Simula), is composed of various armor panels that
can be easily attached and detached from the PLS and stored in dedicated storage containers
when they are not required.
This Kit provides the PLS with improved ballistic protection against mines, improvised explosive
devices (IEDs), light artillery fragments, and 7.62-mm Ball projectiles. The Kit consists of Right,
Left, and Center Blast Deflectors; Front, Side, Rear, and Roof Cab Armor Panels; Doors; Brush
Guard Armor; Windshield and Side Window Armor, and an Armored Escape Hatch (see
1.2 CRATING / UNCRATING
Each Kit is contained within multiple shipping containers. These containers provide the Kit's
armor panels with protection and security when they are not installed on the PLS. Because of
the weight of the specific armor panels within the Kit, care should be taken during removal of the
panels from the containers or replacement of the panels back into the containers. Two
personnel and mechanical aids (hoist, forklift, etc.) are required during the removal / installation
of the armor panels.
1.3 SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
The weights of the majority of the components within the Kit are heavier than allowable for one
or two personnel, and the metal armor components may have sharp edges. Appropriate lifting
and safety equipment, manpower, and safety precautions shall be utilized to ensure that no
injuries are incurred during the installation or removal of the armor panels onto the PLS or
during the removal or replacement of the panels into the shipping containers. Warnings,
Cautions, and Notes are provided in these Installation Instructions, as appropriate, to advise the
maintenance personnel of information necessary for the installation or removal of Kit
components.

concise statements that emphasize critical or important information. Warnings, Cautions, and
Notes precede the text that they affect, but follow the paragraph headings to which they apply.
