OTTAWA, Canada –-(Ammoland.com)- The Med-Eng brand announced today that its new multi-mission TAC 6 suit and visor ensemble for tactical officers will be on display at the IWA OutdoorClassics 2014 Show from March 7 – 14 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany.

This high-mobility protective equipment addresses the increasing threats posed by explosive devices during operations.

Frontline personnel including breachers, dog handlers, High Risk Search teams and bomb disposal technicians supporting tactical teams, face these dual threats in addition to conventional ballistic threats.  Med-Eng joined The Safariland Group of brands in 2013.

The TAC 6 suit is a system of modular lightweight components covering the user’s torso, arms and legs.  It is a scalable platform that supplements an officer’s existing bullet-resistant vest.  Users can select specific components depending on the anticipated threat and their mobility requirements.  The series of four Med-Eng TAC visors quickly attach to an officer’s tactical helmet to provide increasing levels of fragmentation protection to the facial area and to integrate with conventional gas masks.

Rob Reynolds, Vice President of Explosive Ordnance Disposal, commented, “The TAC 6 ensemble offers high performance blast and fragmentation protection to elite security forces in Europe.  The IWA event is an ideal opportunity to meet with the end user community and discuss how this multi-purpose and modular ensemble can be configured to work in a range of hostile environments involving explosive and ballistic threats.  The combination of mobility and protection provided by the TAC 6 can be directly applicable in high threat operations in Europe and elsewhere.”

The TAC 6 is built on extensive knowledge gained from developing the Med-Eng bomb disposal suits, which are trusted by public safety, federal and military agencies across the United States, and was featured in the Oscar-winning movie “The Hurt Locker.”

Med-Eng is the world leader in protective equipment for blast threats and specialized tools for explosives disposal.  Its integrated solutions are thoroughly tested for their purpose and include:
