NIOA joins Rheinmetall Land 400 team
NIOA has joined the Rheinmetall Defence Australia team for its Land 400 Phase 2 bid to the Australian Defence Force, Rheinmetall announced on 2 May.
The company has joined the team as the key supplier of ammunition and armament services.
The Land 400 Phase 2 programme is seeking a mounted combat reconnaissance capability for the Australian Army. The Rheinmetall team's offering is based on the Boxer armoured vehicle.
Rheinmetall has committed to creating a programme of design, build and support for military vehicles in Australia if it is successful in its bid for the programme. NIOA's capabilities will also boost the establishment of national infrastructure assets for military vehicles in Australia.
Andrew Fletcher, managing director, Rheinmetall Defence Australia, said: 'Working side by side on our Land 400 Phase 2 offer represents a natural next step in the relationship between Rheinmetall and NIOA.
'Today's agreement establishes yet another foundation in the development of Rheinmetall's growing defence industrial network in Australia.'
