Land Forces 2018: Hanwha AS21 for Land 400 Phase 3

Survivability against higher threat levels

 

South Korea’s Hanwha Defense Systems unveiled its new Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) as a contender for Australia’s Land 400 Phase 3 acquisition.

To be known in Australia as the AS21 REDBACK for the Land 400 Phase 3 campaign, the AS21 has been modified from an earlier K21 design conceived to meet Republic of Korea requirements. The new version offers enhanced survivability against higher threat levels and matching peer enemy armoured fighting vehicles.

Its larger hull will accommodate eight 95th percentile male dismounts plus three crew. Hanwha confirmed that the two-man medium-calibre turret will accommodate an active protection system that the ADF will most likely select separately, with Hanwha’s promotional image showing sensors, radar and countermeasure dispensers.

Hanwha Defense Systems is a leading defence platform provider in South Korea, with a portfolio of armoured personnel carriers, IFVs, air defence systems and launcher systems and is exhibiting on stand #3D18.
