Rheinmetall buying stake in Supashock

24th July 2017 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall Defence is acquiring a 49% stake in Australia-based Supashock to help develop suspension and load handling products for its military vehicles, the company announced on 17 July.

Supashock and Rheinmetall Defence are already teaming to develop and manufacture a new military suspension and integrated intelligent load handling system for Rheinmetall’s range of military trucks.

Under funding provided to Supashock in May 2017, this sytem is being developed for the Australian and international markets in order to increase the capability and safety of RMMV’s military trucks in demanding on and off-road environments.

In testing Supashock’s suspension technology has been shown to substantially improve the mobility of Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles trucks, while at the same time enhancing on-road safety and reducing the shock and vibration experienced by the load the truck is carrying.

Rheinmetall expects to take the technology to the Australian and international markets.
