Background
The FCS-W is probably the world's latest armored fighting vehicle was unveiled at the AUSA 2002 show. It has been designed in eight months for the U.S. Army's Future Combat System competition to replace the current Interim vehicle - Stryker (Piranha III). The short timescale was made possible by UD working with a number of specialist suppliers among them Timoney Technology who supply the complete 8x8 automotive component.

Like the NREC project Timoney is the only non-U.S. partner in the venture demonstrating it's leadership in the field of high mobility suspension systems and vehicles.
