Rheinmetall's Lynx Infantry Vehicle Targets Australian Market
Andrew Chuter, Defense News 5:33 p.m. EDT June 14, 2016

PARIS — Rheinmetall took the wraps off it’s new Lynx infantry fighting vehicle at the Eurosatory show in Paris on Tuesday, signaling not just the entry of a new contender in world export markets for this type of platform but that Australia was one of the German company’s main early sales target.

“As we launched it in Australian camouflage it’s a pretty good indication that we are targeting it as one of the key starting markets for the Lynx,” said Ben Hudson, the head of Rheinmetall’s vehicle systems division.

The company is already expecting to hear in the next few week whether its Boxer 8x8 armored personnel carrier bid has been successful as part of Australia’s Land 400 requirement.
