This is the smallest Armadillo available, it was developed for use as a rapid intervention shield to be carried in the boot of a patrol car, however because of its size it is now seen by many forces as a replacement for the round shield. The shield is ideally suited to tactics where fast response intervention is required such as drugs raids and street and domestic violence situations. It can be stowed permanently in the boot of a car, ready for rapid deployment. Twin loop handles are suited for straight arm C&R tactics such as take downs and angry man. Fully interlocking with all Armadillo shields and capable of surviving extensive impact from thrown objects and edged weapons. The shield has a 4mm thick clear LEXAN POLYCARBONATE front blade and a 3mm thick backing panel in the same material for maximum visibility and vital body area protection. It has two lightweight aluminium loop handles with non-slip rubber grips for comfortable carry and secure hand grip in action. The backing panel has a shock resistant foam forearm protective pad and a moulded lip at the bottom to enable vertical as well as horizontal interlinking. The strap handle variant enables the user to temporarily release the shield while handling or arresting a subject or performing other duties, and still retain a level of protection.
