CORVUS TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS TO PRODUCE SUSPENSION UNITS FOR REDBACK IFV

Australian advanced manufacturing company, Corvus Technology Solutions, has secured the contract to build nearly 2,000 vehicle suspension units for the Australian Army’s new Redback Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV).

This new partnership will make Corvus one of the top suppliers to Hanwha Defence Australia in the manufacture of this vital new platform for Army.

The suspension units, 14 of which are on each Redback vehicle, help improve ride, comfort and manoeuvrability in the field and provide better under vehicle blast resistance and vehicle survivability than other designs by avoiding the use of torsion bars.

Valued at almost $100 million, this contract will create over 40 jobs at the company’s Melbourne facility and represents a partnership for the future between Hanwha and Corvus.

Mr Dean Michie, Acting Managing Director of Hanwha Defence Australia, welcomed the confirmation of the relationship, saying: “Corvus has a history of excellence in manufacturing that fits well with our culture at Hanwha Defence Australia.

"Their work in building this key suspension component will form a valuable part of the Redback vehicle”
