IDEX Follow Up

Mandus Group participated in February at IDEX, in Abu Dhabi, UAE, as part ofthe AM General booth.  On display was the Hawkeye/HMMWV  lightweight , self-propelled 105mm howitzer.  The Hawkeye/HMMWV combination was a real hit with those attending the show since the common question from those looking at the self-propelled howitzer was "how were you able to mount that large howitzer on that light weight vehicle without damaging the vehicle?"  The answer of course is that this is made possible by the new hybrid "soft recoil" system that Mandus Group has designed that is a revolutionary advance in artillery recoil technology.  

We would like to thank everyone we met at IDEX for stopping by the AM General Booth to see the Hawkeye/HMMWV self-propelled howitzer, and we hope you were impressed with this unique weapon system that offers true "shoot and scoot" on the battlefield.  

Please contact us at 1-888-922-8502 if you would like to learn more about the Hawkeye/HMMWV self-propelled howitzer. We would certainly like to hear from you and would enjoy sending you additional information o n this matchless weapon system.
