The first three of 10 refurbished Australian Defence Force Bushmaster
Protected Mobility Vehicles have been handed over to Fiji to support the
Republic of Fiji Military Forces’ United Nations peacekeeping missions
at the Golan Heights and in Syria.
The Bushmaster armoured vehicles are Australian designed and
manufactured and utilise high performance BISALLOY ARMOUR® steel in
A RAAF No 36 Squadron C-17A Globemaster III aircraft delivered the
vehicles to Beiruit, Lebanon on 15 March 2017. Fiji has purchased ten
refitted Australian Defence Force PMVs to support its United Nations
peacekeeping operations in the Golan Heights and Syria.
When announcing the sale last year Minister for Defence, Senator the Hon
Marise Payne said the Bushmaster was widely recognised as one of the
finest protected mobility vehicles in the world, and has saved countless
Australian Defence Force lives on operation.
“Bushmasters provide Australian troops with mobility and protection,
including against improvised explosive devices, and I’m proud that Fiji
is buying our vehicles,” she said.
“The refurbished vehicles will be overhauled, serviced, inspected and
repainted to ensure they are fully operational, and reconfigured to meet
Fiji’s specific requirements.”
