Supashock confirmed that they have entered into an agreement to export running gear suspension systems in support of a European defence package, valued at roughly $12 million. The first phase of the package will see the delivery of 46 suspension systems.

Notably, the running gear will have a revised hydraulic track tensioner, telescopic dampers, support rollers and road wheel arms.

Further, the company has also agreed to team up with Rheinmetall for the delivery of the Boxer 8x8 combat reconnaissance vehicles. Supashock is expected to produce missile launchers, with the contract valued at $10 million. The launcher will be placed onto the Boxer 8x8’s LANCE turret.

Managing director of Rheinmetall Defence Australia Gary Stewart welcomed the ongoing partnership between Supashock and Rheinmetall.

“This is an example of how Rheinmetall contracts will drive future growth internationally and continue to create highly skilled, enduring jobs in Australia, while delivering significant performance improvements to customers in export markets,” Stewart said.
