Active Protection is a countermeasure against threats to an armored vehicle. The term covers a wide range of systems intended to supplement the vehicle's own armor.
Some active protection systems use "hard-kill" methods to intercept incoming anti-vehicle weaponry or counterattack the platforms using them. Examples include the "Iron Fist" system developed by Israel Military Industries (IMI), reactive armor, and close-in weapon systems.
Other systems use "soft-kill" methods to divert projectiles, such as chaff and IR Flares.
"When this system is activated it will sense incoming missile and rocket threats and detonate them before they reach the vehicle. The system will enter a cooldown state after a threat has been neutralized or no threats have been detected for a short time."
— In-game description
Active Protection is a "hard-kill" vehicle countermeasure specialization in Battlefield 4. It will detonate any incoming projectiles upon activation by firing counter-projectiles.
