The following is an application of Safir 3/4 ton utility vehicle:catsoo
That Safir jeep should have front window armored by metal plate with slits.It also has to be fully armored from all sides (front, sides, back, bottom). Currently Safir is only armored from the sides and back.
they should use cameras and close it entirely.
Those buggies need to be armored against machine gun and sniper rifle fire.I would give them armor (from all sides) against 0.50 (12.7 mm) caliber.
It'll make it too heavy..The buggies advantage is its SPEED..It'll take a VERY good sniper to shoot a target in that fast moving vehicle...

Exactly, they get armored they go slow and can easily be targeted, they get nothing they can avoid being shot at with incredible speeds and maneuverability!
If that buggy advances directly at you, it can be easily shot at with assault rifle and hit. That is why that buggy needs to be armored against 7.62 mm rounds at least.To make it lighter, Kevlar plastic can be used as an armor.
Kevlar makes sense... but I doubt u can shoot it directly with an assault rifle... this isnt Call of duty!
If buggy approaches directly at you in stright line then it is an easy shot (with assault rifle).
