Hanwha rolls out arachnid prototypes

29th July 2020 - 01:06 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Christchurch


Hanwha Defense held a ceremony on 24 July at its Changwon production facility for two AS21 Redback IFV prototypes destined for the Australian Army’s Land 400 Phase 3 competition.

The company commented: ‘This rollout event is remarkable since Hanwha Defense has completed the design, production and verification of the risk mitigation activity [RMA] vehicles on time despite the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.’

Images taken at the event showed the two prototypes, one fitted with an unarmed dummy turret and the other without any turret whatsoever. The latter hull also had a bulldozer blade mounted at the front.
