DEAKIN WEST, Australia, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Rheinmetall Defense's Australian subsidiary is seeking local suppliers for its contract to supply vehicles and mission support to the country's military.

Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia, or RMMVA, said more than 500 companies attended its supplier opportunity events this month in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Melbourne and Sydney.

In addition to RMMVA, a number of its key sub-contractors in the government's LAND 121 3B defense project participated in the presentations.

"RMMVA, in close cooperation with our key sub-contractors, is actively engaging with Australian industry to enable as many Australian companies to be part of this exciting program as possible," RMMVA Managing Director Peter Hardisty said. "The products and services we are seeking include the design, development and production of specific hardware such as modules, some vehicle bodies, sub-systems and components as well as project management and systems integration, developmental, test and evaluation work."

Under the LAND 121 Phase 3B project, Rheinmetall is to supply and support mission systems for about 2,500 wheeled vehicles to Australia's Defense Force, and is working with state governments, Defense Materiel Organization business access offices and Australian industry associations to strengthen its supply chain.
