the funniest thing I heard about Timoney was, they somehow managed to get onto both competing designs for a US army UGV project, lol

Timoney are involved in the two UGV projects for the US, one for the Army and one for the Marines (two totally different vehicles, one weighs 6 tonnes and the other 2.5 tonnes), they also designed the suspension for the United Defense entry for the manned vehicle in the FCS competition.

They were however involved in two competing entries for Project Bushranger, the winning Bushmaster is theirs and so was the Vickers Mark 11.

The latest issue of Military Machines International has an article on the CM-32. I only had a quick skim, but if I read it right then this new vehicle wasn't actually designed by Timoney. It's a locally developed improvement of the Timoney designed CM-31. It will use the Timoney suspension, resulting in the payment of licencing fees.
