LAND 400 project of Australian army will deliver a Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV), an Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV), a Manoeuvre Support Vehicle (MSV) and an Integrated Training System (ITS).

Australian Army soldiers from the LAND 400 project team are currently assessing armoured vehicles to find a replacement for the Army’s ASLAV (Australian Light-Armoured Vehicle) fleet.

The LAND 400 project is the biggest and most expensive in the Army's history. LAND 400 Phase 2 – Mounted Combat Reconnaissance Capability will replace the ASLAV with 225 new combat reconnaissance vehicles.

The highest priority for Australian Army is to replace the ASLAV fleet with a CRV due to obsolescence factors that constrain tactical employment and increase the cost of ownership. These obsolescence factors cannot be mitigated through upgrade and without replacement starting in 2020, a capability gap will result.

The BAE Systems Australia Patria AMV35 and the Rheinmetall Boxer vehicles were recently shortlisted to participate in the next stage of the evaluation – the risk-mitigation activity. The one-year trial and evaluation period is well underway with both vehicles undertaking trials in the Royal Australian Navy's new Canberra-class landing helicopter dock amphibious ships.
