The Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Australia, Scott Morison, announced his readiness to transfer Bushmaster PMV armored vehicles to Ukraine.
This is a response to yesterday's appeal of the Ukrainian President to the Australian Parliament with a request for military assistance.
In addition to the Bushmasters, Australia decided to send other military equipment.
“We are not just sending our prayers, we are sending our weapons, our ammunition, humanitarian aid and our bulletproof vests,” the prime minister said.
The Bushmaster PMV was developed in 1998 by Thales Australia. This is an armored vehicle seven meters long, equipped with a 300 hp diesel engine, accommodating nine fighters. It is in service with Australia, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Fiji, Jamaica and Japan. A total of 1072 copies were issued. They are used as military transport, patrol vehicles, weapons platforms and ambulances.
Bushmasters will be delivered to Ukraine by military transport Boeing C-17 Globemaster III.
DEATH TO THE RUSSIAN OCCUPANTS!
