Defence is seeking input from Australian industry on the proposed tender timeline for LAND 400 Phase 3.
The acquisition of mounted close combat vehicle capability through the tender will be one of Army’s largest purchases, and will replace Army’s M113 Armoured Personnel Carriers with a fleet of up to 450 modern Infantry Fighting Vehicles and 17 Manoeuvre Support Vehicles.
The new vehicles are expected to enter into service by the mid-2020s.
The proposed tender timeline identifies key milestones in the tender evaluation. The timeline will be open for review and comments until Monday 9 July 2018. It can be viewed at: http://www.defence.gov.au/casg/EquippingDefence/Land400.
