Re: M777 Portee DVD 2016

Aren't Australia replacing their M777 with the K-9 Thunder?

I suspect...

Ideally in my opinion the T-83 needs to be a British manufactured and tweaked clone of the Arleigh Burke plight III, with matching weapons loadout, sensor capability and aviation assets. The Arleigh Burke's make great all-round escorts able to cover most missions because of their size and large num...

The SF like the Bushmaster but it wasn't their first choice, that was the Pandur 6x6 I believe. It has also shown that it has limited growth potential, as the Australian Army have discovered. Luckily they are bringing into service a new platform more than capable of doing the tasks they originally ...
