Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence
Once completed in third quarter 2020, Rheinmetall Defence Australia’s (RDA) new Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) in Ipswich, Queensland, will be the most advanced military vehicle manufacturing facility of its type in Australia.
The MILVEHCOE will enable RDA to manufacture the LYNX alongside existing production of the BOXER, as well as undertake integration and sustainment activities for the fleet of new high mobility logistics trucks operated by the Australian Army.
Each schedule will draw on a skilled Australian workforce and Australian supply chain, each in place and qualified to deliver products and services that are proven and at the standard of build quality required to protect the Australian soldier in combat.
With construction being overseen by the Queensland Government, the MILVEHCOE is on track for phased practical completion from early 2020. The first Block 2 BOXER vehicles will roll out of the facility in 2021.
