BAE Systems Australia has awarded a potential work package worth more than $20 million to AME Systems in support of its bid for the Australian Army’s Land 400 Phase 2 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV) programme, the company announced on 17 November.

BAE Systems Australia and Patria are offering the AMV35 for Land 400 Phase 2 to replace the aging Australian Light Armoured Vehicle fleet.

The company has selected AME Systems to manufacture electrical wiring harnesses for the AMV35 should its bid be successful.

Glynn Phillips, chief executive, BAE Systems Australia, said: ‘We have worked with AME Systems for many years and we are pleased to be able to continue this relationship with our Land 400 offering. It has a highly skilled workforce ready to work with us to deliver a high quality product for the Australian Army.

‘Working with partners like AME will help us develop and maintain Australian industry capability on major projects like Land 400 and to hit the ground running should we win the contract.’
