ANDSF to receive life-saving protection systems

Afghanistan’s National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) will receive Silvershield units this year from Australian. More than 15,000 lifesaving units would be manufacture and delivered to Afghanistaninfo-icon’s armed forces, the Australia Department of Defence said on Monday.

Silvershield is a vehicle-mounted system that protects the army against radio-controlled improvised explosive devices. The units would enable the Afghan security forces to operate more efficiently in a high-threat environment, according to a statement from the department.

“The Redwing programme is one of Australia’s largest contributions to the Afghan security forces through the Afghan National Army Trust Fund,” Defence Minister Linda Reynolds was quoted as saying. She added: “We are extremely proud to produce life-saving force protection systems for our Afghan partners to help address the evolving threat of IEDs in Afghanistan.”
