With Land Forces in Brisbane next week, the topic of conversation has been set: Land 400 is on the move. Project Destrier has been on the books for some time, with various contenders positioning themselves for years in some cases. No doubt the Land Environment Working Group will provide more information on the program along with the chance to chat with the program office members.
Stay tuned to the ADM website and newsletters for all the highlights from Land Forces next week. You can also stay abreast of the event via Twitter @austdefence, @Kziesing, @NigelPittaway1 and @LandForces14. Stop by the stand, check in with the ADM team and enter the draw for wine and military books.
