Bisalloy Steel Group announced the extension of its longstanding teaming agreement with Rheinmetall Defence Australia for the further development and production of high performance armour steel for military vehicles. This steel is to be used for Rheinmetall’s Australian manufactured BOXER 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles, for export customers and specifically, once certified by the German Government, used as a source of supply for Rheinmetall in Germany. Rheinmetall and Bisalloy are currently working together in Australia and Germany to create specialised grades of BISALLOY Armour Steel for application on the BOXER 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles to be delivered to the Commonwealth of Australia’s LAND 400 Phase 2 program. Bisalloy’s new armour steel is in the final stages of German Government qualification process.

Bisalloy is two years into the development of new grades of armour steel in order to meet the exacting protection levels required for each BOXER 8×8 CRV. Once certified, Bisalloy steel will produce the best protection for Australian soldiers to ensure they survive and win in combat.

Bisalloy is also working closely with Rheinmetall as part of the company’s offer, the LYNX KF 41 Infantry Fighting Vehicle, for the aUD 10 billion LAND 400 Phase 3 program and the supply of more than 400 IFVs to the ADF.

Australia’s only manufacturer of impact resistant, armour and protection grade steels, Bisalloy has a long history of collaboration with the ADF. Developed in the 1980s for use in the hulls of the Royal Australian Navy’s Adelaide Class Frigate, BISALLOY Armour steel has since been used in several other local defence projects, including the Bushmaster Infantry Mobility Vehicles.
