Eurosatory 2014

Horses can fly (ES14E4)

19 June 2014

As its name might suggest, CHS Spezialcontainer (Outside Stand E290) produces a wide range of containers for many duties.

On show here is a helicopter-portable box for small horses or pack animals, which can securely accommodate two animals for transport as an underslung load.

The box incorporates an integral loading ramp and stowage for feed and equipment, and can be fitted with a top frame to fit a tarpaulin cover. Maximum weight is 2,000kg, allowing for 450kg per animal. The horsebox is in use with the German armed forces.
