MAN CAT A1 15t 8x8 Chassis cab 2.9 and 2.5 mtr was developed by MAN trucks to accommodate loads with high centres of gravity. The high ground clearance for rough terrain coupled with the wider axles makes this chassis cab suited to the addition of such things as:-
Water tanker military truck 15,000-25,000 litre capacity. 8x8
Diesel tanker military truck 15,000-25,000 litre capacity 8x8
Drilling military platform 8x8
Service unit for quarry work 8x8
Standard all terrain cargo military truck 8x8
Military Tractor Truck 8x8
Box truck personnel carrier 8x8
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.
MAN CAT A1 15t 8x8 - Off-road. No limits.
They battle through desert sands and along stony tracks, over
scree and mud, snow and ice. Climb the most extreme gradients,
ford rivers and chase across any terrain. CAT A1 & SX
all-wheel-drive trucks just keep on moving. Capitulation is not
an option whatever the terrain.
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 40
to plus 49 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.
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.
