The Australian Defence Minister announced that the country would participate in the development phase of the JLTV. As we posted yesterday three development contracts are due to be announced soon by the US Army. JLTV will be used to replace Land Rover vehicles in the Australian inventory. The benefit to them of course is that there 4200 unit buy will be a drop in the bucket compared to the thousands the US military will purchase guaranteeing them a good price. Mr. Fitzgibbon also announced upgrades to a variety of current vehicles and the purchase of more Bushmaster armored vehicles.
