Badak Fire Support Vehicle

Indonesia's PT Pindad has signed a contract with Ireland's Timoney at IDEX today to upgrade the Badak 6x6 with a customised Timoney modular driveline, transfer case and steering system. 

The Badak is a 6x6 vehicle fitted with a CMI Defence two-man turret to provide direct fire support for deployed troops. It has a monocoque hull and is fitted with an independent suspension system, the Irish firm announced in a statement today. 

The vehicle has a novel powerpack packaging solution that enables internal space to be maximised and has a special front mounted transfer box inputted to the first axle. This provides the vehicle with greater space to house the turret system.

Shane O'Neill, Chief Executive of Timoney said “We have also designed a new steering system and transfer box to provide PT Pindad with the ultimate solution to meet their mobility requirements,". 

Timoney driveline solutions are based on modular designs which can be customised to suit individual vehicle needs. They can be matched with Timoney's transfer cases and steering systems or be part of a complete under the hull mobility solution.
