The Chevrolet Suburban armored vehicle has been an extreme contender in Iraq. Build- outs like the one contained in this publication have performed well in providing ballistic protection as required in the region up to this point. Spec Ops Service is bringing ultimate protection state-side. CHEVROLET SUBURBANS HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY CONVERTED INTO ARMORED PROTECTION VEHICLES FOR USE IN IRAQ. Spec Ops Service offers unparalleled longterm lease and rental services. Our armored vehicles will exceed expectations of even the most discriminating clients. SOS utilizes the top armoring manufacturers in the security/military vehicle and cash in transit industry. Our fleet stretches the globe, many operating in high risk areas such as Iraq and Afghanistan. Our unique armoring designs provide high reliability and durability, ensuring that the vehicles will be virtually free of warranty issues despite the fact that the armoring process adds a substantial amount of additional weight on the factory chassis. The following specification details the armoring modifications done at SOS to offer the finest protection vehicle in its class.

It also reinforces the structural integrity of the pillars and other areas that are typically ignored or poorly armored by other manufacturers. ● Vehicle armoring shall be constructed in such a way as to ensure that a projectile following a linear or angled path shall not enter the vehicle’s interior without contacting the armor material. In addition to this, the possibility of a projectile entering the vehicle’s interior due to a ricochet from the armor shall also be minimized. SOS rear ballistic bulkhead provides ballistic and blast protection for the occupants, featuring a large ballistic viewing glass, reinforced hinges for superior durability and ballistic steel backing behind the opening handle to prevent bullet penetration.

SPEC OPS SERVICE: A Channel for Uninhibited Personal and Corporate Growth Stand with us and you will not stand alone ARMORING DETAIL 06continued www.specopsservice.com TRANSPARENT ARMOR ● A combination of glass, Polycarbonate and Mylar are bonded together using the latest technology, producing one of the finest transparent armors available while incorporating the following. ● Meets or exceeds levels CEN B6 ballistic protection, ● Anti-spall shield protecting against shattering glass ● Multiple impact protection (three shot). ● Finest optical quality offers minimal distortion ** Important New Feature** Many users are not aware that the ambient heating of glass in hot climates can actually reduce the ballistic resistance of the transparent armor significantly. SOS armored glasses are constructed using special techniques which modify the heat absorption properties of the glass to virtually eliminate this problem. The result – ballistic resistance is maintained even in regions of consistent hot weather. DOORS ● 360° armor overlap at all doors to prevent penetration through door posts and pillars. ● Door pillars reinforced for maximum strength retention. ● OEM Door hinges replaced with custom engineered heavy duty hinges ● All doors fitted with double looped nylon restraining straps to reduce stresses to hinges during opening ● Handles are reinforced to provide longer life in rugged environments ELECTRICAL ● All standard electrical equipment of this vehicle shall be tested and modified as necessary to protect against the armoring process. INTERIOR ● All original OEM interior panels and trim will be resized or modified and re-installed wherever possible to obtain as close to an original look as possible. ● As most original panels will no longer be possible to fit, SOS paneling shall be used in place of same where required by armor design. DOOR ARMORING. Door panels resized to accommodate the armoring of the vehicle. Full 360° armor overlaps at all doors and other openings of the vehicle, providing optimal ballistic and blast protection. Armored Vehicle CHEV-SUB-2500-B6

To this end we upgrade the braking systems of this vehicle for improved performance and safety. ● Front and rear discs are replaced with slotted, vented discs for better heat dissipation. ● Optional upgraded systems are custom made for SOS using even sturdier brake materials taken from the automotive racing industry and engineered to perform in an armored vehicle application. SUSPENSION ● Along with the improved braking systems, Spec Ops Service armoring partners alters the suspension components of all vehicles to provide added safety, and improved performance and handling of the finished armored vehicles. ● SOS uses upgraded suspension components as our company standard on all vehicles, as well as adding custom engineered components not found in standard after-market suspension upgrade kits, which results in a superior ride and handling experience when compared to OEM parts or the less-effective upgrade kits. ● As an optional addition, SOS has the suspension replaced with a system which has been specifically engineered and tested for Spec Ops Service, and offers a ride experience unique in the market and unmatched by any other manufacturer. TIRES AND RUN FLATS ● Overheating of tires during service is a major cause of blowouts in the security and protection industry. SOS utilizes unique methods to offset the effects of overheat during service, thereby ensuring that our vehicle tires will maintain a lower operating temperature and guard against dangerous blowouts at all times during a mission. ● The certified Hutchinson run flats used by SOS have been proven as reliable by clients worldwide in a variety of unique operating environments. ● SOS Standard configuration includes five (5) run flats installed including the spare tire. ● SOS also offers an optional run flat upgrade and heavier tire combination which maintains higher load capacities and runs cooler than standard units. This guarantees improved performance in the event that the vehicle tires become disabled.

WEIGHTS The approximate weight for the complete armored vehicle is 5,000 Kg. Please note: The center of gravity in any vehicle is raised after armoring which can affect the stability in cornering and braking. While suspension upgrades have been completed to offset this effect, care must be taken in handling the vehicle. It is recommended that drivers are trained to handle the vehicle with the increase in weight load and change in center of gravity position.*** Ballistic armoring is installed in the engine bay to protect the ECM unit and battery from ballistic threats.
