Australian minister for defence industry Christopher Pyne said in a statement on 13 April that the vehicles were provided by Refuel International, the company that was awarded a AUD47 million (USD35 million) contract in October 2016 to deliver a new generation of aviation refuelling vehicles under Joint Project 157 Phase 1.

"The three vehicles have been delivered on schedule and will be used to support the delivery of familiarisation training for defence personnel preparing for the transition of new vehicles into service in mid-2017," said Pyne.
