VRA has committed to produce the SPIKE guided weapon system to the Australian Army for its Long Range Direct Fire Support Weapon and for Phase 2 and 3 of the LAND 400 program.

VRA noted that its SPIKE system is already in use by six countries, with an extensive Transfer of Technology (ToT) program enabling Australian industry to move into domestic guided missile production and comprehensive in service support.

The company also hopes to use its ToT program to support the sovereign production of guided munitions, and has begun the process of consultation with other Australia-based defence manufacturers.
