Defence Equipment

(Question No. 384)

Mr Robert asked the Minister for Defence Materiel, in writing, on 25 May 2011:

Is the Australian Defence Force converting all regular field artillery batteries to medium artillery.

Mr Clare: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1) Yes, the Australian Defence Force is in the process of converting all regular field artillery batteries to 155mm guns. This is being done under LAND 17 Phase 1 which will deliver both self-propelled and towed guns able to fire precision munitions at very long ranges, and at high rates of fire.
