Australia has selected Rheinmetall to supply its new Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles. 

The Australian government announced on 14 March that Rheinmetall’s Boxer 8x8 won the $4 billion (AUD5,2 billion) Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle competition after a three-year tender. 211 vehicles will be delivered to the Australian Defence Force under the program.

To deliver the project Rheinmetall will establish a Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) near Brisbane. The MILVEHCOE will allow Rheinmetall to transfer cutting-edge technologies to Australia in the areas of military vehicle design, production, turret systems, sensors, survivability, simulation and through life support.

Rheinmetall revealed the reconnaissance vehicles will be equipped with advanced Lance 30mm turret.
