Abstract:

The patent relates to a hydraulically actuated, independent roadarm suspension system wherein hydraulic fluid is supplied to any individual roadarm actuator by a hydraulic pump and reservoir contained within the roadarm. This provides vehicles, such as military tanks, with a suspension system that keeps to a minimum the requirement for interior body space for suspension components and eliminates the need for the hydraulic fluid conduits within the hull.
