While much of the attention was on both the Navy and Air Force due to the arrival of a growing number of F-35 Joint Strike Fighters for the Royal Australian Air Force, progress on the SEA 1000 Attack Class submarines and SEA 5000 Hunter Class frigates – Army has operated largely under the radar, despite major modernisation updates. 

2020 has seen a resurgence of focus on Army's increasing number of modernisation and capability enhancements – with progress made on the $5.2 billion LAND 400 Phase 2 and the $10-15 billion LAND 400 Phase 3 programs.

The Army has also seen progress made on the LAND 19 Short Range Ground Base Air Defence and LAND 4503 Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter replacement and the LAND 8116 Protected Mobile Fires self-propelled artillery gun programs, and the federal government used the 2020 Defence Strategic Update and supporting Force Structure Plan to support the development and lethality of the Australian Army.

In this podcast, hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper discuss the biggest headlines that made news in the Land and Amphibious domain from LAND 400 progress, through to the development of Australia's self propelled howitzer program, industry milestones for Hawkei production and the LAND 129 program.
