BAE Systems Australia has partnered with a number of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Victoria for potential work worth over $200 million as part of its Land 400 bid for the Australian Defence Force, the company announced on 6 June.

Companies selected by BAE Systems include Marand, MOOG Australia, Motec, AME Systems, RUAG Australia, DVR Engineering, Milspec and APV.

BAE Systems is offering the AMV35 for the programme, with plans to manufacture the vehicle locally if selected in order to grow local manufacturing knowledge, create jobs and bring further economic benefits to the Australian SME supply chain.

Under the agreements, Marand will produce the hulls of the AMV35 while the other suppliers will provide manufacturing expertise including heavy fabrication, electronic systems and complex assemblies.

If selected for the programme, Australian industry will also participate in the upgrade and maintenance of the vehicles during their service with the Australian Army.
