A Look Inside the Bushmaster Protected Vehicle

There has been a lot in the news over in Australia concerning the defence contractor Thales and contracting issues with the Department of Defense. The main issue at hand was the uncertainty of maintaining enough manufacturing to support the workforce of the manufacturer. Recently the government rolled forward with additional Bushmasters to give stability to demand for labor until future projects are approved.

We thought this video gave great insight into the Bushmaster and why it is the preferred armored vehicle for Australian and Dutch forces among other nations whom are considering them for their own defense forces. This vehicle and others like it provide troops the ability to operation in areas that now and in the future are subject to threat of improvised explosive devices. Plus, who can't appreciate some live firing of a .50 cal.
