Australian National Audit Office report into Land 121 Phase 4: Protected Mobility Vehicle Light (Hawkei)




Somehow we went from a Partner Nation in the Tech Dem phase of JLTV, complete with right-hand-drive prototypes being tested in Australia, to a “locally made” truck (Austrian engine, German transmission, US suspension, Israeli protected module, Israeli BMS, US radios - but locally made).

Rheinmetall and DST (Defence Science and Technology group of the Australian DoD) have signed a partnership treaty regarding autonomous systems.





Might leverage technology and concepts from the Boxer JODAA development and be an advantage for LAND 400 Phase 3, if Australia is also looking at optionally manned operations.

      In a joint press conference this morning, AU PM Scott Morrison, UK PM Boris Johnson and US President Joe Biden announced the acquisition of SSN and domestic nuclear manufacturing capability to replace our 6 SSK. This will substitute the previously programmed 12 “shortfin barracuda” SSNK (denuclearised barracuda SSN).
      This is a massive change for Australia.

      I'm interested how good K21 would be as a torch in engagements against North Korean armour with such a lot composites in a structure.
