Rheinmetall collaborates with Milspec to develop high tech alternator for Land 400 Phase 2 contender BOXER CRV

Rheinmetall Defence Australia and Albury-based Milspec Manufacturing Pty Ltd are pleased to announce their collaboration on the development of a highly sophisticated alternator designed for military vehicles.


The alternator has been specially designed by the family-owned precision engineering company for Rheinmetall’s BOXER Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV) after two years of design and product development.


This collaboration further underlines Rheinmetall’s commitment to supporting Australian industry - not only for built to print components - but also across the development of high level components.


The battle proven BOXER CRV is also one of two contenders for the Australian LAND 400 Phase 2 program. If selected, BOXER CRV will provide the Australian Army with a combat proven, low risk capability that can be rapidly transitioned into service and easily supported through life.


Milspec has been among SMEs who have presented to Rheinmetall Defence Australia and BAE Systems Australia as part of the Land 400 Phase 2 national roadshow facilitated by the Commonwealth over the past five weeks.


Rheinmetall Defence Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Andrew Fletcher said the company was delighted to work with Milspec to increase the capability of the BOXER CRV.
