The Israel-based international defence electronics company has put forward advanced Redback turret equipment for an anticipated contract between Hanwha and Elbit Systems, after Hanwha Defense Australia was announced as the preferred tenderer for the Australian Land 400 Phase 3 project.
That equipment would include Commander Open Architecture Panoramic Sight gunner sight, additional electro-optic systems, Iron Fist active protection system, Iron-Vision advanced situational awareness head-mounted display system, and ELAWS laser warning system; dependent upon completion of negotiations between both parties.
The Australian federal government previously announced Hanwha Defense Australia as the winner of the multi-billion-dollar LAND 400 Phase 3 program to transform the Army’s combined arms combat capabilities.
Under the program, Hanwha Defense Australia will provide the Australian Army with a fleet of 129 infantry fighting vehicles in one of the largest capability acquisition projects in the history of the Army.
