The mainstream media this week has had a fascination with all things submarine related. Here at ADM, we figure that we'll be writing about the wonderful world of submarines until the grandkids are ready to crew them. Why rush? There's plenty of other news in the Defence community but they do get a mention nonetheless.
Land 125 Phase 3B has been awarded to Australian Defence Apparel, SME opportunities on new special forces vehicles and the ADF is set to receive new aviation fire trucks under Land 998.
In other news, ADM will be hosting the Defence Support Services Summit next week in Canberra. Click on the link to get the full details of the event.
