Prime Contractors: Medium/Heavy Vehicle Capability: Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia, Medium/Heavy Trailer Capability: Haulmark Trailers Australia.
Defence will acquire around 2700 medium and heavy vehicles along with associated modules and approximately 1700 trailers under LAND 121 Phase 3B. Contract signature took place in July 2013 with: Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia for vehicles and modules; and Haulmark Trailers (Australia) for trailers. The Phase 3B fleet will include both protected vehicles (for operational deployment and tactical training) and unprotected vehicles (primarily for tactical training). These vehicles will enhance performance and protection and the Army’s training and logistic support capability, by providing uniformity throughout the fleet. These vehicles will replace the current fleet of Unimog, Mack and S-Liner trucks.
Subject to both companies’ performance, further quantities of vehicles, modules and trailers may be acquired under LAND 121 Phase 5B.
