IDEX: Soucy Brings Composite Rubber Track (CRT) Technology

Middle East nations will seek to integrate CRT onto their platforms

Soucy Defence Division exhibits their Composite Rubber Track (CRT) at the Canadian Pavilion on booth 01-B60.

Soucy has an operationally proven system serving in conflict theatres such as Iraq and Afghanistan on Canada’s M113,the UK’s BVS10 (VIKING) and Norway’s CV90 vehicles. A more recent CRT trial was conducted under a joint programme with BAE Systems on a WARRIOR Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) at the UKs Armoured Trials & Development Unit where its advantages surpassed the expected capabilities. The 5,000km, 3-month trial was conducted to strict mission profile parameters directed by the UK MOD, ensuring the CRT was trialled in a realistic operational environment.

With CRT being on average 50% lighter than conventional Steel Track (ST) and able to operate in temperatures up to 50° Celsius, it is thought that more and more Middle East nations will seek to integrate CRT onto their platforms such as BMP3, M109 and the MCV-80 Desert WARRIOR,” the company states.
