The scope of a multi-billion dollar programme to supply the Australian Army with up to 450 tracked infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) may significantly be reduced, Janes has learnt.

According to informed sources, Rheinmetall Defence Australia (RDA) and Hanwha Defense Australia (HDA) – the two companies vying for Project Land 400 Phase 3 – were requested by the Department of Defence (DoD) in Canberra around 18 June to amend their respective bids to provide 300 IFVs instead of the original 450.

This involves revising the pricing model in the final proposals submitted by both companies in late 2021 at the conclusion of extensive risk mitigation activities involving the Rheinmetall's Lynx KF41 and Hanwha's Redback.

The companies were also asked to submit bridging budgets, enabling the government to consider increasing its order in increments of 50 vehicles. Revised figures were required by the end of July for a decision on the successful contender in September, the sources said.
