AxleTech International awarded high-speed planetary axle orders

AxleTech International received an order to supply axles for BAE Systems’ RG33 6×6 Category II all-wheel-drive Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Vehicles. The 600-vehicle award for MRAP vehicles, when combined with previous MRAP axle contracts, brings the total value of AxleTech’s MRAP contracts to $70 million, says the company.

This new award from BAE Systems to supply its survivability-enhanced RG33 vehicles will use AxleTech’s upgraded 5000 Series 5G high-speed planetary axles. These axles have been designed and constructed with high impact resistant and energy absorbing materials. The design offers increased payload capacity for heavier, up-armored requirements and is capable of withstanding the high dynamic shock loads of the MRAP combat application, according to the company.
