The ACSV G5 (Armoured Combat Support Vehicle) offers armed forces flexible support on the battlefield and covers a wide range of mission capabilities through the use of different mission modules.
Based on decades of experience in the development of upgrades and service life extension projects, FFG has developed this highly innovative support vehicle completely from scratch. Based on the lessons learned from more than 1,600 upgraded vehicles in numerous international projects, as well as the extensive testing and trials of FFG's PMMC G5, all have been incorporated into the final design of the ACSV G5.
The ACSV G5 uses latest technologies and represents the current state of the art of tracked vehicles. The electronic design follows the NATO Generic Vehicle Architecture (NGVA) and meets extremely high requirements for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and data security through consistent red-black separation. The CAN bus allows fast data exchange between the individual vehicle components and enables rapid fault analysis.
The ACSV G5 runs on a composite rubber track system that dramatically reduces vibration and noise both inside and outside the vehicle. As a result, the "rubber track" reduces stress on equipment as well as on the soldiers inside the vehicle. The track's contact length and width provide very low ground pressure and guarantee excellent mobility on all surfaces, especially on snow, soft sand or boggy ground.
