Military Braking Systems

Alcon is leading the way in the transfer of motorsport technology into the defense sector. The braking requirements of an armored personnel carrier may be different to those of a racing car, but to Alcon still strived to create the strongest, lightest and most efficient braking system.

The company supplies braking components to the defense industry on vehicles as diverse as British Army Land Rover Defenders, Supacat Jackal and Coyote armored vehicles and the 35 ton, eight wheel Patria AMV. Alcon also equips tracked vehicles such as tanks and vehicles with regenerative braking on one or more axles. Learn more>

armored vehicle brakes

Alcon creates bespoke braking systems for armored vehicles that provide the same or better braking performance than the unarmored car upon which it is based, despite the armor often adding 50% to the weight of the vehicle without a significant increase in wheel size to accommodate bigger brakes.

specialist vehicle brakes

The company also equips a variety of specialist vehicles that all need braking systems designed specifically for their unique role, including emergency services, police forces and riot control vehicles.

Alcon works with customers to understand their needs, agree a specification, design, develop, produce and test the components, supply and then support the customer for as long as its components are on their vehicles. Learn more>
