BAE Systems Australia today announced that it had awarded an additional package of LAND 400 work worth over $15M to a local firm Marand to manufacture the AMV35’s turret shell.
LAND 400 is the Australian Army’s largest ever vehicle replacement program.
Previously, BAE Systems announced that Marand would manufacture the AMV35 vehicle hull.
BAE Systems Australia and Patria have offered the AMV35 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle as part of their bid for LAND 400 Phase 2 – to replace the aging ASLAV fleet. With proven combat experience, the AMV35 is highly capable, survivable, and delivers value for money to its many users.
BAE Systems Australia Chief Executive Glynn Phillips said: “Marand has proved it has a skilled and experienced workforce ready to work with us to deliver a high-quality product for the Australian Army. Working with partners like Marand will help us develop and maintain Australian Industry Capability on major projects like Land 400”.
