Australia — Disposal of up to 12,000 Army Vehicles

Min­is­ter for Defence Materiel Jason Clare today announced the release of the Request for Pro­pos­al for the dis­pos­al of up to 12,000 sur­plus Army vehi­cles and trail­ers.

Last month the Min­is­ter announced reforms to the dis­pos­al of mil­i­tary equipment. 

Part of these reforms is the dis­pos­al in bulk of up to 12,000 Army vehicles. 

“By dis­pos­ing of this equip­ment in bulk, it will increase the amount of rev­enue Defence can raise and rein­vest in new equip­ment,” Mr Clare said. 

“The mon­ey raised from the sale of these vehi­cles will be invest­ed in Force 2030, with one option to fund sim­u­la­tors used for train­ing that will reduce the wear and tear on Army vehicles.” 

The Army vehi­cles that will be dis­posed of are non-com­bat vehi­cles such as Land Rovers, trail­ers, Uni­mogs, trucks and truck-mount­ed cranes. 

The vehi­cles will be pro­gres­sive­ly replaced by new vehi­cles under Defence Project LAND 121. 

The dis­pos­al will take place over the peri­od 2011 – 2020. 

“A num­ber of vehi­cles will be reserved and offered exclu­sive­ly to com­mu­ni­ty and her­itage organ­i­sa­tions, includ­ing the Aus­tralian War Memo­r­i­al, RSLs and oth­er his­tor­i­cal organ­i­sa­tions,” Mr Clare said. 

Organ­i­sa­tions wish­ing to express inter­est in acquir­ing vehi­cles can reg­is­ter their inter­est with the Defence Dis­pos­als Agency, by email, or phone 02 9393 2914.
