    There is a possibility that the Mk 48 Mod 1 Maximi will eventually replace within the Minimi. The Maximi has replaced the Minimi for soldiers from the Air Defence Guard Squadron and all Infantry Force Elements and the Other Government Agencies Platoon that are deployed with the 7RAR Task Group. The SASR and 2nd Commando Regiment has replaced their inventory of Minimi & Minimi Paras with the Maximi & Para variant. I don't believe the Maximi will not replace the MAG 58 as they serve in two different roles. The Maximi is Ligh Machine Gun and the MAG 58 is a General Purpose. This is what i believe might happen anyway.

    The Ops Core FAST Helmet has replaced all Enhanced Combat Helmets with all operators of the SASR and 2nd Commando Regiment. The Ops Core has recently been issued to our U.S counter parts including 1st SFOD-Delta, U.S Army Special Forces, DEVGRU, Navy SEALs & JTACs of the Air Force's Special Tactics Squadrons.

    It appears according to a picture of the SASR & Force Command Sniper Competition which the SASR won. That the SASR is now being issued with XT-clave enhanced Blaser Tactical 2.

    According to a Government Contract Tender. The SASR is conducting a tender evaluation fo the Heckler & Koch 416A2 MOD D10B 10 Inch Barrel for a possibile replacement for the M4A1. Here is the sourse i got the infomation from ( https://www.tenders.gov.au/?event=pu...74ABBE079B638D )

    Other candidates for the replacement of the M4A1 are the Mk107 and the Colt R0923CQB(Mk 18 CQBR) .
    Here is the source for the Mk107: https://www.tenders.gov.au/?event=pu...FA5D73B91F3C27
    Here is the source for the Colt R0923CQB: https://www.tenders.gov.au/?event=pu...8B224E11A410DF.

    Heckler & Koch 417 16 Inch Barrel has become as standard issue Marskman Rifle of SOF and is soon to become standard Army wide.

    [SIZE=3][*******#000000][FONT=Calibri]HAWKEI PMV-L
    As many as 1300 Hawkei Light Protected Mobility Vehicles will be ordered under Defence Project Land 121.
    The Hawkei PMV (Protected Mobility Vehicle) is a light 4x4 armoured utility vehicle originally designed to meet an Australian Defence Force (ADF) requirement for a light armoured patrol vehicle to replace some of its Land Rover Perentie. In December 2011, the Australian Government announced Hawkei as the preferred vehicle option for development and testing under the Manufactured and Supported in Australia option for Defence Project Land 121 Phase 4. It is an innovative, highly mobile, highly protected, 7-tonne vehicle, with in-built vehicle systems to make it a real fighting platform for Australian troops. The Hawkei has been developed with Vehicle Electronic Architecture to be mission system ready.
    As part of a wider project to replace the ADF's fleet of operational support vehicles, Project Land 121 Phase 4 – Protected Mobility Vehicle (Light) or PMV-L, called for up to 1,300 specialised light armoured vehicles to be used in place of some of the ADF's in-service Land Rovers. Key criteria for the project included: excellent off-road mobility, integrated vehicle electronic architecture, substantial payloads, and high levels of protection against land mines, improvised explosive devices and ballistic weapons while being light enough to be air transported by military helicopters.

    M777 A2
    The 35 M777A2 howitzers have now been received and the final version of the battle management system software has been delivered und Land 17 Phase 1B. A further 19 additional howitzers have been placed on order and deliveries are expected to end shortly before 2014.

    MERCEDES BENZ G-WAGON
    Project Overlander is a multi-phased project to deliver the ADF's future field vehicles (including modules as a component of the vehicle) and trailers. Under Phase 3A Defence is acquiring 2146 unprotected lightweight/light Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon vehicles comprising eight mission system variants including a range of specialist modules such as canine, ambulance, surveillance and mobile command posts.
    These vehicles, along with those being acquired under LAND 121 Phase 4, will replace the current Land Rover 4x4 and 6x6 fleets. The main roll out to Defence units began in July 2012 and will continue until June 2015. Delivery of 1799 Haulmark trailers is scheduled to occur between July 2012 and mid-2016.

    BUSHMASTER PMV
    During 2012-13 the initial focus of the Bushmaster Project is the completion of the delivery of 101 protected mobility troop variants (Production Period 4) to address attrition and future operational requirements. Delivery of these vehicles commenced in February 2012 and is scheduled to conclude in April 2013. The project will then commence delivery of another 214 Bushmaster PMVs under Production Period 5. This will bring the total number of Bushmaster PMV to 1118.

    Wrong, wrong and wrong on most of what I could De-cypher.

    Instead of posting what you think you know I would actually back it up with something that is fact.

    Thanks Digrar, I think it's pretty good picture quality considering it was taken with a Nokia N95, one of the best camera phones at the time.

    The only thing that is what i believe is going to happen is the Maximi an Hk 417 section. The rest about Ops Core, possible replacement of the M4A1 is fact. So there ya go, its not all wrong, wrong, wrong.

    ROFL!!!!

    Nice name change Dig.

    Just out of curiosity, how many Bushmasters does Army actually need? I thought there were a ***** tonne just lying around not getting used, and now Pet-Ops has something about 1118 all up in service?

    Lets hope they get the proper radio gear for them...

    Unless of course the extra are for 2 Div.
