The Fox Hole is a system of modular panels and brackets designed to provide soldiers with an area of ballistic and blast-fragment protection. Ideal for use by fielded marine and army units, the Fox Hole's ease of transport and assembly make it a simple and effective alternative to traditional sand bag or in-ground bunkers.
Fox Hole panels are 4 feet tall and available in 2- and 4-foot widths. Connecting brackets are available in 0, 30, 45 and 90 degree angles, allowing for custom configuration to fit specific requirements. The unit is available as NIJ Level III Rifle Resistant or NIJ Level IV Armor- Piercing Resistant, weighing 15 pounds and 20.5 pounds per square foot, respectively.
Smaller, lighter and more portable than most protective systems, the Fox Hole breaks down quickly and can be established in a new location with ease. All assembly of the unit can be completed in the field with no tools, and a three-panel system takes approximately ten minutes for two people to assemble.
A number of custom features and options help maximize the Fox Hole's effectiveness in the field:
