Project name

Land Combat Vehicle Systems – Land 400

Industry sector



Land 400 is a $10 billion program to deliver up to 700 new armoured vehicles for use in sustained close combat to the Australian Army.

Vehicles to be produced include combat reconnaissance vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles, and manoeuvre support vehicles.  An integrated training system will also be produced.

Land 400 will allow a staged retirement of the ageing in-service Australian light armoured vehicles and armoured personnel carrier fleets.

Key project infrastructure that may be located in the north includes a land combat systems precinct, which would go on to have uses beyond the Land 400 Program.
