It is home to France's 40th Artillery Regiment and was once home to 15th Artillery Regiment which operated the nuclear Pluton missile as part of France's deterrent during the Cold war. During early months of World War One, British soldiers were deployed here and were to march to Châlons-sur-Marne to fight the First Battle of the Marne.
The commune is traversed by the Suippe river, from which it takes its name.
