Lightweight Suspension – Horstman Ambitec®
Lightweight suspension ideal for lightweight tracked IFVs.
AmbiTeC® was invented and patented by Horstman to reduce the thermal variation of hydropneumatic suspensions.
This Lightweight Suspension is ideal for lightweight tracked IFVs – consistent vehicle ride height and performance when carrying or after deploying troops and equipment.
Great technological solution for Bridgelayer vehicles – consistent vehicle ride height with bridge loaded on vehicle or deployed.
Reduction in vehicle ride height due to temperature effects
- More consistent vehicle ride height to maintain ground clearance
- Maintains desired bump and rebound wheel travel as the suspension changes temperature during use
- Provides more consistent vehicle performance over a wide temperature range
Reduction in vehicle ride height due to changes in load
- Reduced vehicle ride height change as payload is increased or decreased
- More consistent vehicle performance under varying payload requirements
- Ability to change vehicle configurations without compromising or needing to vary suspension characteristics
- Charging kit – Hydrobooster™
- Wheel hub, lightweight wheels, bump stops
- Advanced track tensioner
- Band Track technology
