New Oshkosh Humvee Suspension



what you see here in front of you is the Oshkosh TAC force suspension and survivability upgrades for the high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle we've taken our proven tact for suspension that's already on the marine corps medium vehicles it's already on our MATV saving lives in theater and we've placed it on the Humvee chassis in addition to this we've added a blast plate for underbody survivability we've added a new engine and a new transmission to bring back all the mobility in the payload and actually improve the cross-country mobility for this vehicle while guaranteeing that the Marines are back in a survivable platform so what we do is we use a improved suspension that increases the height to provide the 17 inches of ground clearance that the Humvee originally had it provides that even with full load and full armor we also integrate an underbody protection system that deflects the blast away from the vehicle will at the same time providing very robust protection from that blast in the fragments so between the suspension in the underbody kit itself we provide both mobility and tremendously improved ie D protection for that crew this will keep troops safe
