Horstman: InArm external suspension system selected for US Army MPF program

By Defence Industry Europe staff

The Horstman Group, a company of the Renk Group, announced that its InArm external suspension system has been selected by General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) and the US Army for the Mobile Protected Firepower (MPF) program. The Horstman InArm was selected from the outset because of its ability to offer superior mobility while at the same time providing good ride quality and a stable platform. The InArm is a true externally mounted suspension system that eliminates the need for torsion bars, freeing significant space claim inside the hull and improving survivability.

“This program award represents a significant milestone for Horstman. While we have had InArm design and prototype production capability in our Michigan-based facility for some time, this program will be our first rate production InArm® suspension program for our US team. This production order significantly expands our global delivery footprint and adds to our existing UK-based high rate production programs for allied nations.” said Ian Pain CEO of the Horstman Group.

This InArm production capability positions Horstman to better support the company’s customers in their pursuit of US Army programs.
