Composite Rubber Tracks

For Modern Fighting Vehicles

Military composite rubber track systems are an exciting new development in the light armoured support vehicle arena.

The benefits that composite rubber tracks bring military applications are many and include increased blast resistance, radical reduction in vibration, lower operational volume, minimal maintenance, increased traction in harsh environments and ease of fitment while in the field.

Our specialist knowledge of rubber track technology make us ideally placed to supply tracks for vehicles such as the well-known Hägglunds BV 206, a tracked articulated and all-terrain carrier used by many armed forces units across Europe. We also support many variants of this vehicle including the BV 206F, RaBv 2061, PvBv 2062 and PvBv 2063.
