Australia signed early this week an agreement with Germany to deliver more than 100 Australian-made Boxer armed carriers to the European nation’s military in one of its largest defense export deals.
German Rheinmetall began making the combat reconnaissance vehicle in Australia in March, under a contract to supply 211 vehicles to the Australian military
Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, who witnessed the signing by Australian and German officials in Berlin, said it was “one of the biggest defense sales in Australia’s history and is worth over $1 billion to the Australian economy.”
The deal to export German military technology back to Germany comes as the war in Ukraine has forced European nations to replenish their military equipment.
