SPV400 performance and reliability trials continue21-09-2010
Supacat are proceeding at full speed with their in-house development and reliability trialling programme for the all-new all-British SPV400. The newly constructed 60% slope and articulation gauges at Supacat’s Devon test facility are being used to put the SPV400 through arduous trials that exceed those conducted by the MoD at Millbrook earlier in the year. The SPV400 seen in this video is vehicle number 7 (click here to read more about vehicle 7) that has been demonstrating significantly enhanced performance and reliability over that achieved by the two prototypes purchased by the MoD for trials earlier in the year. Supacat’s Sales and Marketing Manager Jamie Clarke said “we fully understand the operational imperative surrounding the LPPV programme and that we must continue our own trials and development at full speed concurrently to the MoD’s programme. We’re really pleased with the progress of vehicle 7 and having driven the 60% slope myself recently, I can assure you that the vehicle’s performance under these conditions is breathtaking. We’re testing alongside a Jackal and the SPV400 is able to match it across all aspects of our test track so anyone who has driven a Jackal will be aware of the performance on offer with the SPV400”.
