SMASH is a new hadronic transport model designed to describe the non-equilibrium evolution of heavy-ion collisions. After a brief introduction to the model, it will be shown that SMASH correctly reproduces the cross sections and maintains detailed balance. First comparisons to pion rapidity spectra measured by FOPI and HADES will be presented, followed by predictions for strangeness production in pion-nucleus collisions as recently measured by HADES.
