The vehicle brake system must be upgraded to cope with the added armor weight. Proper brakes are vital and can make the difference between life and death.  To correct for the new weight distribution and dynamic forces of the armored vehicle, specifically engineered heavy duty brake systems can be installed on every armored vehicle.  These systems can vary in performance depending on several factors such as rotor size, drilled vs. slotted rotors, calliper size, brake pad material composition and size, steel vs. regular brake lines, type of brake fluid used.  Depending on the final vehicle weight and area of operation, IAG can recommend and install different brake systems.
