One of the down-selected tenderers for the LAND 400 contract, BAE Systems, has revealed the SMEs it will team with if it wins the tender.

The company has named Victorian firms Marand, MOOG Australia, Motec, AME Systems, RUAG Australia, DVR Engineering, Milspec and APV as the companies it will be working with.

The LAND 400 program is currently in Phase Two, which involves renewing 225 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRVs) for the army.

If BAE Systems is selected, the build phase of the project will create over 100 supply chain jobs in Victoria, according to the company.

BAE Systems is competing for the contract with German company Rheinmetall, which has shortlisted both Queensland and Victoria as potential locations to build and maintain the vehicles. BAE Systems is based in South Australia, but also has plans to complete the work in Victoria.
