In the presence of the Hon Melissa Price, Minister for Defence Industry, Australia, an agreement was just signed at the DSEI between Rheinmetall and Thomas Global Systems. „Today, in accordance with agreements to be signed by the companies, Rheinmetall announces that Thomas Global Systems has been awarded a contract for the supply of major elements of the Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV) Immersive Tactical Trainer (IIT) system to the LAND 400 Phase 2 program,” the agreement states.

These are the turret training systems of the Boxer, 13 will be delivered from Rheinmetall to the Australian defence forces. Today’s signing is primarily intended to send out a signal that Rheinmetall is giving quite some workshare to Australian companies, so that Australia’s defence industry will benefit from such cooperations.
