Having trialled the vehicle in Australia and South Korea, Hanwha Defense is pitching its K21 Redback in the European IFV market.

Hanwha Defense used the first day of Eurosatory 2022 on 13 June to give a European debut to its K21 Redback IFV.

Having blooded the AS21 version of Redback in the Australian outback as part of tests for Project Land 400, Hanwha is hawking the platform to the European market.
