Soucy Defense has been contracted to integrate Composite Rubber Tracks (CRT) onto the Norwegian Armoured Combat Support Vehicle (ACSV). This comes after Flensburger Fahrzeugbau Gesellschaft (FFG) won the tender to manufacture and supply ACSV’s to the Norwegian Army in May 2018, a solution the company intends to base around its PMMC G5 vehicle. It has mounts to accommodate freight containers and in conjunction with the increased durability and low maintenance attributes of the CRTs, can enhance battlefield logistical reach.
The reduced vibrations enabled by the integration of CRTs also aids the protection of sensors and electronics located on other military equipment such as radars, which may also be mounted the ACSV’s stable framed platform. Due to the ACSVs open and closed hull configurations, it can be adapted in the closed configuration to house a command centre or ambulance. The vehicle can also be adapted to a wide range of operations including domestic disaster relief and international peace support missions
