Buffers Marine AB Receives New Order for Training Insert Plates

Buffers Marine AB recently received a new order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration for training insert plates to ballistic vests.

This is a model Buffers Marine developed in conjunction with their delivery of ballistic floatation vests to the Swedish navy several years ago. Instead of using ceramic or polyethylene plates in the daily training sessions, they will use a “dummy” that is the same shape and weight as a standard ceramic level IV plate.

In normal daily use the plates take a lot of beating during exercises, so this solution will save a lot of money as the real plates will always be functional when needed. This will now be a standard solution for the Swedish armed forces in future.

Buffers Marine AB has also developed their ballistic floatation vest in a special training version. The ballistic panels are replaced with a mock-up material with the same weight and configuration as a normal ballistic panel. This makes the training system complete and keeps the cost for maintenance and replacement at a much lower level than before.
