About Chassis MAN CAT A1 8x8
military MAN CAT A1 8x8 15t 8x8 Chassis cab 2.9 and 2.5 mtr was developed by MAN trucks to accommodate loads with high centres of gravity.
No strategic vehicle is more reliable and long-lived The A1 series is probably the most mobile and reliable truck on earth. It is primarily deployed as a carrier for sensitive weapons systems, since its boxed frame structure does not pass on any torsion, even when driving at full speed in difficult terrain. It is the only truck with a loading interface on which a Patriot system can be mounted entirely without compromising mobility. Vehicles in the A1 series are military trucks with strategic importance. Their rigid axles and boxed frame construction give them an unsurpassed record of mobility and reliability in any terrain. It was scheduled for 30 years of use, making it the military vehicle with just about the lowest lifecycle costs of any in existence.
Could the military MAN CAT A1 8x8 ever get in it up to their neck? Not a chance, since they are ideally equipped even for deep water. Without preparation for instance the A1 has a fording depth of 1200 mm in accordance with STANAG 2805. Their service profi le includes a large ground clearance, very good angles of approach and departure and enormous permanent climbing capacity (60 %) together with a ditch crossing ability of up to 1.9 m (depending on the wheel formula), a step climbing ability of 0.6 m (depending on the tyre size) and a maximum side slope of 40 %.
Last but not least they are designed for climatic zones A1 to C1 according to STANAG 2895, and even with the series equipment they can withstand extreme outside temperatures from minus 50 to plus 50 degrees Celsius.
A strong basis - the ladder frame. The body-friendly, low torsion ladder frame of the MAN CAT A1 8x8 is based on the tried and tested series frame of the civilian TGA range and is designed for service with a large off road proportion - reliability built-in. It is made of high-strength, fi ne grain steel and has riveted and bolted cross members and a steel bumper. Due to the low torsion frame, comfortable and gentle transport is guaranteed. The lateral acceleration acting on the platform or body is low.
MAN CAT A1 8x8 Comfortable and robust - the leaf suspension. Like the frame the suspension has stood the test in many thousands of MAN vehicles. The leaf suspension further developed for the A1 & SX with long, wear-free, rubber mounted springs, large shock absorbers and stabilisers absorb most ground irregularities.
100 % torsional stiffness – the box-type frame. The extremely torsion resistant box frame with hollow longitudinal members and welded tubular cross members put the A1 & SX in a class of its own. With this design the suspension absorbs even extreme terrain irregularities. The desired consequence: the body remains unaffected even during fast off-road driving.
First class order: Maintenance and care The cab can be hydraulically tilted to a position ideal for work on the engine and gearbox, air drier, solenoid and ventilation valves. For day-to-day checks the front panel gives access to the engineoil fi ller neck, containers for the washer fl uid, brake and other electric connections. The oil reservoir for the supply of the steering and auxiliary hydraulics is situated behind the cab. Thanks to the sight glasses the fl uid level can be checked at a glance. The cab fl oor can easily be sprayed out with a water hose for cleaning.
