Under Project LAND 121, Defence has sought to transform the support capabilities of the Australian Army, by introducing current-generation, high-capability field vehicles, modules and trailers.

LAND 121 will deliver around 7,500 protected and unprotected vehicles to the Australian Army by the time it is concluded, providing battlefield mobility and logistics support for Australia's land forces.


"Overall, Project LAND 121 will deliver a networked and integrated capability as a significant contribution to the modernisation of the land forces," the Australian Army's website reads.

"Ongoing co-operation with a number of projects delivering command, control, communication, computing and intelligence (C4I) and force protection solutions will see the delivery of vehicles with a generational advancement on current fleet technology."

This multibillion-dollar project, which will see the introduction of 1,100 Thales Hawkei vehicles, 2,268 G-Wagon all-wheel drives and 2,536 medium and heavy vehicles (from Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia and Haulmark Trailers Australia), as well as the modification of 49 existing Bushmaster protected mobility vehicles, is currently rolling out across the Army, and will continue to do so for the next few years.

Scroll through the photos above for a look at the Army's range of support vehicles.
