Thales Australia has announced that the Australian Government is to purchase an additional 214 Bushmaster vehicles for the Australian Army. Thales made the announcement on 3 July 2012 in a company statement.

Over 800 Bushmaster vehicles are on order and in-service with the Australian and Netherlands armed forces. Thales called the Australian government’s decision a ‘tremendous expression of confidence’ in the vehicle.

Thales Australia CEO Chris Jenkins commented: ‘Bushmaster vehicles are proving their worth every day in Afghanistan under some of the harshest conditions imaginable. The vehicle’s life-saving design, off road mobility and reliability have made it a mainstay of Australian operations.’
