Rheinmetall Defence Australia (RDA) has entered into agreements with a host of small local businesses in support of its programmes to supply military vehicles to the Australian Army. The partnerships were announced by the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) on 7 August.

According to a DoD statement, seven small companies have been selected to partner RDA on its contracted projects to build and supply Rheinmetall Boxer 8×8 combat reconnaissance vehicles under Land 400 Phase 2 and logistics trucks under Land 121 Phase 5B.

The seven new subcontracting agreements are worth a total of about AUD20 million (USD13.4 million), according to the DoD, and represent a small portion of the work to be allocated to local industry under the Land 400 Phase 2 and Land 121 Phase 5B procurement projects.
