Supacat have teamed up with AM General and Madus Technology displaying the versatility of Soft Recoil Technology (SRT), which is currently undergoing characterization tests by the U.S. Army and can be integrated into existing ωєαρσиs systems and mounted on indigenous vehicles. The HMT Extenda Mk2 upfitted with a 105mm light weight gun containing SRT, transforming the vehicle into a more ℓєтнαℓ mobile ωєαρσиs system. The HMT Extenda MK2 is a light tactical vehicle that can be simply and easily integrated with equipment, which provides protection for the crew and vehicle in a variety of theatres. Mounting the 105mm gun with SRT onto the vehicle allows for “shoot and scoot” capability – it can quickly deploy, fire, and displace, increasing survivability from counter battery fire.

The HMT Extenda MK2 showcases the flexibility of the AM General /Mandus SRT and its ability to convert existing light vehicle platforms into self-propelled howitzer systems. Phil Applegarth, Director of Supacat explains, “the integration of the 105mm Light Gun Barrel and the AM General and Mandus Soft Recoil System onto the Supacat HMT Extenda Mk2 connverts the platform into a long-range artillery vehicle, providing enhanced mobility, avoiding static positions, and enticing counter fire. The ability to fire and manoeuvre without pulling a trailer exists with Soft Recoil Technology, protecting both the crew and vehicle – this is why we are working with this technology. Protecting lives is at the heart of everything we do.”
