Claimed to offer best-in-class turning radius, maneuverability, and ride and handling, AxleTech’s ISAS technology has provided off-road mobility to “thousands of vehicles.” Major components are common to the current RG-31, RG-33, and Husky vehicles; heavy equipment transporters; and the Palletized Load System.

AxleTech International, a General Dynamics company, will supply 250 new RG-31 MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicles with its proprietary 4500 Series ISAS (Independent Suspension Axle System). The suspension systems will be delivered to BAE Systems' Land Systems South Africa division for integration into vehicles being manufactured under a contract awarded by the U.S. Marine Corps in February to General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada, the prime contractor for the award. Work on ISAS integration was expected to begin immediately (the contract was announced in early March).
