CounterBalance Corp. Awarded Contract with Textron Commando(TM) Select Vehicles

Exclusive contract granted to manufacture door deployment system for armored military vehicle

North Venice, FL – CounterBalance Corporation, manufacturer of a modular torsion spring system, has entered into an exclusive contract with Textron Marine and Land Systems to manufacture a door deployment system for its new Commando™ Select Mortar Vehicle line.

Each Commando™ vehicle will now feature a counterbalance torsion spring system, engineered precisely to lift the 200 lb. mortar door straight up. Located on the roof of the vehicle, the mortar door operates like a hatch and allows soldiers inside the vehicle to fire mortars that hit outside targets. The counterbalance makes the mortar door virtually weightless and provides soldiers quick response time during enemy engagement.

CounterBalance Corp. is manufacturing 500 custom counterbalance units for the Commando™ Select Vehicle line.
