The Australian Defense Forces (ADF) is extending the current LAND 121 Phase 3B Project to run through 2024. Under the new program – Land 121 Phase 5B – the Australian subsidiary of German-based Rheinmetall Man Military Vehicles (RMMV) will supply more than a thousand logistical vehicles, and 800 payload modules and trailers, to the Australian Defense Forces (ADF) between 2019 and 2024 under a contract worth a total of A$1.4 billion.

Under the LAND 121 Phase 3B program, RMMVA is currently delivering 2,536 protected and unprotected military logistic trucks, and 3,858 locally produced trailers and payload modules from its Brisbane-based integration facility. The new order will be an addition to that program.
