SOUCY Rubber Tracks On Polish BORSUK IFV

The defence division of SOUCY is exhibiting their Composite Rubber Track (CRT) system in the Canadian Pavilion at the annual MSPO show in Kielce, Poland.

 

Press Release, 4th September: We are showcasing our CRT technology, in partnership with Huta Stalowa Wola (HSW), on the new BORSUK IFV vehicle. The BORSUK IFV has been developed for the Polish Army and the version displayed on the PGZ stand has a composite rubber track system from SOUCY Defense.

SOUCY’s CRT system consists of a continuously cased rubber band structure, reinforced with a range of composite materials and steel cord, weighing up to 50% lighter than comparable Steel track. This has enabled the vehicle weight to be reduced.

 

Our CRT System offers additional advantages: up to 70% vibration reduction (providing more crew comfort and prolonging life of on-board electronics); up to 13 dB noise reduction (improving crew communication, situational awareness and vehicles battlefield stealth).

 

The BORSUK IFV is an amphibious vehicle and is a very rapid manoeuvrable vehicle. The name BORSUK takes its origins from the Eurasian Badger, the serial production being expected from 2019.
