The federal government has provided $100 million for upgrades to the School of Armour, including construction of three-story Armoured Vehicle Simulation Centre.

The School of Armour at Puckapunyal will receive a new three-story Armoured Vehicle Simulation Centre as part of a $100 million package from the federal government.

Works are expected to begin in March and finish late 2022, and will also extend to the modernisation of facilities around the School of Armour including the driver training facilities and tactical simulators.

The government expects that the upgrades will employ 200 people at their peak. 

“The program will also deliver workshops and supporting infrastructure that is designed to be able to maintain the suite of armoured fighting vehicle platforms both now and into the future," noted Defence Industry Minister Melissa Price.
