BAE Systems and Patria have selected RUAG Australia to produce ballistic armour in support of their bid for the Australian Army’s Land 400 Phase 2 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV) programme, BAE Systems announced on 21 February.

RUAG Switzerland will transfer the technology to RUAG Australia to enable the in-country production of ballistic armour for the AMV35 offering.

The ballistic armour selected for the AMV35 is a multi-material protection system that is combat tested and mission-proven.

John Teager, managing director, RUAG Australia, said: ‘Establishing this unique, in-country capability within RUAG Australia will further strengthen the Australian industry content proposed within BAE Systems’ offering for Land 400 Phase 2 and will ensure that, in RUAG Australia, Australian soldiers can depend on an Australian company to supply them the highest possible level of protection that appliqué armour can provide.'
