Aquaterro launched AquaterroTV to shine a spotlight on the development of new Australian made defence equipment. The launch even includes a limited time offer for those who sign up to the new video service.
The launch of the new platform coincided with Land Forces 2021 in Brisbane, with the team at Aquaterro unfortunately being unable to attend the event due to the recent Victorian lockdown, which dictated that those who had been in Victoria within the 14 days prior to 27 May could not enter Queensland.
The video platform, which has been touted as a “one-stop” platform for watching how defence equipment is trialled and tested, currently features testing of Aquaterro’s new SIG SAUER MG338 light weapons system, the SIG SAUER MCX-Spear and SIG SAUER LMG68, which were hoped to have been on display at the recent Land Forces exhibition.
The three weapons systems, the MCX-Spear, LMG68 and MG338, are currently being proposed by Aquaterro for the Australian Army’s LAND 159 tranche 2 program. The LAND 159 program had been tasked with overseeing the modernisation of 26 weapons systems within the Australian Defence Forces.
The company has also confirmed that those who sign up to the AquaterroTV news site will receive two free T-shirts, courtesy of Aquaterro, as a limited time give away.
Aquaterro’s new TV platform comes weeks after a visit by Prime Minister Scott Morrison to the Aquaterro headquarters based in Melbourne.
“In our defence industries that we have been building the capability and self-sufficiency year, on year, on year to ensure that companies like this have the capacity to meet the demands and needs of our significant Defence Force upgrades,” Prime Minister Morrison said.
“Supporting them so they can do the right job for Australia, the job we need them to do, and more of that is being done by Australian companies like Aquaterro here in Melbourne.”
