Here is the rundown on EEAK. Basically it is a pasive armor, spaced steel plates.
Enhanced Applique Armor Kit (EAAK)
The EAAK consists of a series of bolt-on armor panels that provide additional armor protection to the vehicle. With the EAAK mounted, the vehicle receives a substantial increase in ballistic protection. The EAAK adds 4,400 pounds (1,996 kg) to the vehicle. The EAAK mounts to the AAVP7A1, AAVP7A1 (RAM/RS), and AAVC7A1 but not the AAVR7A1.
Protection for vehicle side and slope, troop compartment overhead, and slope rack kit for sponson stowage of OEM.
Attachment: boss and joint offset method.
Material: homogeneous harden steel, rubber, mild steel composite.
Boss offset from hull (no armor): 0.75 inch per side.
Maximum offset from hull: 8.50 inches per side.
No penetration for 7.62mm and smaller weapons at muzzle velocity.
95% probability of no penetration for 12.7mm armor piercing at muzzle velocity.
95% probability of no penetration for 14.5mm at 300 meters.
99% probability of no penetration for 155mm HE at 50 feet.
Substantially decreases the effectiveness of shape charge weapons by reducing the fragmentation debris cone from 110° to 35°.
