Passive mobility system developed & manufactured in-house for use on Armoured Personnel Carriers (APC).
ADVANCED RUNNING GEAR
Supashock’s running gear is a high capability suspension system that results in improved all-terrain handling and stability to reduce driver and occupant fatigue and enhance ride comfort.
The Supashock suspension system has the capability to carry various mission kits and weight classes without compromising mobility, these variants include IFV, APC, ambulance, recovery, and command and control.
The running gear comprises of a telescopic damper, bump stops, support rollers, road wheel arms and hydraulic track tensioner.
Hydraulic bump stops limit road wheel travel to prevent damages of running gear elements.
Active track tensioner allow the vehicle to be configured for different conditions.
Support rollers bear the upper part of the track and suppress vibrations.
ROAD WHEEL ARMS
Road wheel arms optimally designed for a large range of vehicle weights.
ENHANCED RIDE COMFORT
Dual stage damping which enhances ride comfort on small terrain variations and stability on large terrain variations, reduced heat generation, more robust fasteners, ease of assembly and service.
Tunable to suit all vehicle configurations (Armored Personnel Carrier, Ambulance, Recovery, Command, Infantry Fighting Vehicle).
Proven mobility performance, service life and thermal stability from -40 to +200 deg.
RELIABLE & COST EFFICIENT
The rubber-tyred road wheels are mounted on a suspension system comprising swing arms with conventional torsion bars and a Supashock damper system, this set-up is proven to be reliable and cost-efficient.
The advanced running gear system means that tracked vehicles can be configured to carry various mission kits and survivability packages without compromising mobility.
