RMMV, Supashock enter partnership
Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles (RMMV) has teamed up with Australia's Supashock for the development and manufacture of a military suspension and integrated intelligent load handling system for its range of military trucks, the company announced on 15 May.
The system, which incorporates Supashock’s active suspension technology with an intelligent load handling system, will increase the capability and safety of RMMV’s military trucks in on and off-road environments.
In comparative testing, the suspension technology improved the mobility of RMMV’s trucks, enhanced on-road safety and reduced the shock and vibration experienced by the load the truck is carrying.
Rheinmetall sees broad application of the integrated intelligent load handling system and Supashock’s suspension technology on both Australian and international programmes.
Ben Hudson, head of Rheinmetall’s Vehicle Systems Division, said: ‘We are strong believers in the technology that Supashock has developed as it will provide a step change in the performance of both our tactical and logistic vehicles.’
