Description: The Bushmaster was designed to meet Australian Army's requirement for a high mobility, comfortable, protected, fully equipped troops transport vehicle. The Bushmaster accommodates up to 10 fully equipped military personnel (1 driver + 9 passengers). Bushmaster features a generous cabin space, protection against landmines thanks to its deep V-hull and ballistic projectiles (withstand 7.62mm ammunition), air conditioning and cooled water storage. The Bushmaster was specially designed for Australia's terrains but is equally suitable for other theaters of operations and environments. Bushmaster has all wheel drive independent suspension, an in-transit tires inflating system and is powered by a 6-cylinder diesel engine that provides up to 330-hp.

The Bushmaster vehicle family includes: troop transport, command and control vehicle (C2), peacekeeping, ambulance, direct fire weapon, mortar, combat engineer and scout. The Australian Army original plans called for the purchase around 300 Bushmaster vehicles with production starting in August 2004. Australia had ordered more than 800 armored vehicles by 2015. The vehicle is also under consideration by the United Arab Emirates with the evaluation expected to begin in late 2004. As of July 2006, the Australian Army has received 152 troop variant Bushmasters from the first production batch. These vehicles have been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Bushmaster is manufactured at ADI Limited Bendigo facility in Victoria, Australia.
