We are ready to deliver the Land 400 combat reconnaissance vehicle, the AMV35
BAE Systems is a global defence and security company with proven experience in combat vehicle design.
In Australia, we have been delivering manufacture, assembly, integration and test, modification, systems integration, training and in-service support to the Australian Defence Force for more than 20 years.
BAE Systems Australia, the Patria Group of Finland and BAE Systems Hägglunds of Sweden, are offering the AMV35 - an extremely versatile Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle – for Phase 2 of the Commonwealth’s LAND 400 program.
We are committed to manufacturing this vehicle in Australia and in doing so, maximising Australian industry content.
Our plans to manufacture in Australia involve transferring intellectual property rights, technical information, skills, engineering data and know-how from the AMV35’s Finnish and Swedish makers into Australia to establish manufacturing capability here.
We have been working with Australian industry since before the Request for Tender was released in early 2015. Our market evaluation of 268 SMEs that have already registered with us has confirmed that Australian industry possesses the innovation and capability to competitively and efficiently produce the best vehicle for the Australian Army.
BAE Systems Australia will also work with its overseas partners to establish global supply chain opportunities for local SMEs.
Two of BAE Systems’ AMV35s arrived in Australia in early May, ready for the Commonwealth’s Risk Mitigation Activity (RMA) which is due to start later this year. The successful tenders for the 12-month RMA evaluation are expected to be announced soon.
BAE Systems welcomes the opportunity for regular Australian Industry engagement and is committed to exploring Australian products and services for LAND 400 Phase 2. As the prime contractor, a main objective is to establish the in-country capability to sustain the Australian Patria AMV fleet throughout its service life as the Army’s Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle. Supply chain opportunities are promoted through Australian Industry networks, and BAE Systems’ Approved Suppliers and Global Access Programs.
Saab products are inherent in the vehicle design and Saab Australia will provide support for ongoing Australian Industry Capability development.
