    Men of the 2/13th Battalion patrolling around Tobruk. This was my maternal great-grandfather's unit during WWII. He lied about his age to join, saying that he was younger. He had also joined up in WWI by lying, saying that he was older.

    The Australian Army intends to replace its aging fleet of Australian Light Armored Vehicles (ASLAV) and the M113AS4 Armored Personnel Carrier with “a tracked and turreted IFV [infantry fighting vehicle] with protection levels similar to that of the Abrams tank while carrying an eight person section,” according to the Land 400 Phase 3 Mounted Close Combat Capability Request for Information (RFI), released by the Australian Department of Defense. (The RFI deadline is February 22.)

    The Department of Defense called the Land 400 program one of its “most significant capability programs” designed to enhance “the mounted close combat capability of the Land Force.” According to the Australian Army’s website, “LAND 400 will deliver a Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV), an Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV), a Maneuver Support Vehicle (MSV) and an Integrated Training System (ITS).”
