SASR Nary
« on: August 03, 2012, 08:26:03 PM »
The Nary is based on the Supacat HMT 400 4 x 4 and 6 x 6 vehicles. It can be fitted with an "optional" mine blast and ballistic protection kit, mission hampers, weapons, communications, surveillance and force protection equipment. It has two machineguns and a grenade launcher.

The world's most expensive four-man army vehicle was named in honour of SAS Warrant Officer and vehicle specialist David Nary, who died in a training accident in Kuwait in 2005.

The Australian variant has been dogged by technical problems including systems integration, payload, suspension and armour problems, and will be 42 months behind schedule. Its weight was boosted by a tonne of steel armour to almost 10 tonnes, making it too heavy to drive into Army Chinook helicopters used to carry patrol vehicles all over Afghanistan and Iraq.

Fantastic vehicle. But when you let the Australian MOD buy it, it becomes a very expensive vehicle not fit for purpose. 42 months behind in Service date, thats very good Wedgetail was only 6 years over run and is still not FOC.

No such things as "MOD" in Australia.. The Nary has pretty much followed the same development path as the British Army Jackal, and for much the same reasons.  Supacat have won the next phase of Project Redfin with their latest model, the Extenda - must mean something.

As for the Wedgetail, I know more than a bit about that project and if you want to be at the front of the technology curve such are the risks.  The two aircraft that deployed on Pitch Black did very well and the capability is constantly improving.

Ok, I should have said Australian defence department, but same same.

Good not agree more wedgetail is matureing into a great platform. But it's still costing the tax payer due to over sight on project costs, mr shareholder is the winner here.

Take a look at this photo. It shows a British army Supercat /Coyote/Nary 6x6 logistics vehicle presumably in Afghanistan. Of interest are the two small Australian flags mounted to each side of vehicle and the Australian desert DPDU worn by the front gunner. The Australian soldier/SASR? may be on an evaluation mission as the SASR are in the process of acquiring modern up-to-date vehicles of similar spec. A US army soldier is seated in the rear compartment.

This sort of thing goes on a lot these days, good way to learn new equipment etc.

Some times also due to staff issues, funny that the RFA have had ships along side for over a year, as they don't have enough crews for them, so much so there now employing US Coast Guard Engineers.

Just like many of the Collin's class subs are manned by US submariners.

They can't recruit and train enough Aussies who want to be submariners, so the septics man the US sourced electronic systems.
