Military Logistics

Norwegian ACSVs to gain composite rubber tracks

10th November 2020 - 12:41 GMT | by The Shephard News Team

​New tracks are intended to cut maintenance and operating costs for military logistics vehicles

The Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency has awarded Canada-based Soucy Defense a $7.5 million contract to manufacture and deliver composite rubber track (CRT) systems for Armoured Combat Support Vehicles (ACSVs).    

CRTs  are intended to improve the mission endurance of the ACSV, while also reducing maintenance requirements.

Its low noise and vibration footprint also helps to protect sensors and other equipment mounted on the platform, Soucy Defense added on 9 November.

ACSV logistics vehicles are being manufactured by FFG for the Norwegian Army under a May 2018 contract. The ACSV is based on the modular PMMC G5 design; to reduce costs and simplify maintenance, the PMMC G5 makes extensive use of MOTS and COTS components.

The vehicle can also be fitted with interchangeable mission modules that can be changed in a few hours in-theatre. 

Shephard Defence Insight expects Norway to order up to 160 ACSVs.
