Timoney driveline for Badak vehicle

27th February 2017 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The PT Pindad Badak 6x6 vehicle will be upgraded with a Timoney modular driveline, transfer case and steering system under a contract between the two companies announced on 22 February.

The Badak's powerpack packaging solution enables internal space to be maximised and has a special front mounted transfer box inputted to the first axle. This provides the vehicle with greater space to house the turret system. Timoney's driveline packaging solution has been engineered to work with this design.

The Badak vehicle is armed with a CMI Defence two-man turret to provide direct fire support. It has a monocoque hull and is fitted with an independent suspension system.

Shane O'Neill, chief executive of Timoney, said: 'The engineering requirements of the PT Pindad Badak has capitalised on our 50 years' experience of developing mobility solutions.

'The design brings together our modular approach to meeting customer requirements... with our driveline expertise and we have also designed a new steering system and transfer box to provide PT Pindad with the ultimate solution to meet their mobility requirements'.
