by Julian Kerr

Canberra will invest up to AUD800 million (USD610 million) to acquire new fleets of Australian-built amphibious vehicles and landing craft, Defence Minister Linda Reynolds announced on 4 February.

Replacements will be sought under Project Land 8710 Phase 1 for the Australian Army’s 58-tonne in-service LCM-8 landing craft and the LARC-V amphibious vehicles, the minister said in a statement.

Two separate fleets are set to be procured, with deliveries of both capabilities anticipated from 2026. Numbers to be acquired have yet to be decided.
