The cost of armoring is very high. There are various resistance classes that relate to the resistance of individual materials and are certified according to DIN or Euronorm as the firing class. The standard EN 1522 applies, it defines the classes B1 to B7. The bulletproof glass according to EN 1063 has the classes BR1 to BR 7. The entire vehicle receives certification between VR1 and VR10, where VR stands for "Vehicle Resistance".
