The Republic of Ireland purchased up to fifty-four wheeled armored vehicles from BAE Systems Land Systems OMC. Creamer Media’s Engineering News writes that the contract calls for twenty-seven vehicles and options for another twenty-seven. Ireland will utilze these vehicles to support their peacekeeping operations. Some nations have purchased equipment in the past to support their units deployed on missions in Afghanistan and Iraq like Poland that will never be used anywhere else and won’t enter the nations military’s normal inventory. Ireland is doing that with this order from BAE’s South African component.
