Making tracks [IDEX17D2]

19 February 2017

The aluminium trackways produced by UK-based FAUN Trackway (Stand 05-C28) allow the military to traverse terrain where roads are impassable or non-existent. Its products are used by 40 different armed forces worldwide, and the company recently secured a multi-million pound sterling contract with the Swiss armed forces.

This follows from a 2008 order for FAUN Trackway’s heavy ground mobility system (HGMS). The HGMS is an aluminium modular roadway that deploys, recovers, transports and stores up to 100m of MLC 70 (military load classification) trackway. It improves mobility for heavy vehicles and can withstand repeated loads of up to 150 tonnes, dependent on the ground conditions.
