The Australian government has handed over the first elements of the Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) to Rheinmetall Defence Australia.

The MILVEHCOE site in Queensland will carry out the design, manufacture, sustainment and export of military vehicles, turrets and tactical systems, including the Australian Army’s Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle programme.

The hand-over is the next step in Australia’s LAND 400 (Phase 2) project. Initially, the facility will be used by Rheinmetall to conduct heavy grade repair, integration and support to the army’s new logistics vehicles, being delivered under LAND 121 Phase 3B/5B.

Commencing in 2022, the facility will produce and maintain the Boxer 8x8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle capability.

The facility is expected to be officially launched in July 2020.
