The Australian International Airshow 2011 at Avalon in Victoria is not just about aircraft. One such place is the 'Avalon Arena' which is set up very much like a 4x4 test track. On display are many types of military all-terrain vehicles and prototypes. Such vehicles include the Bushmaster IMV (Infantry Mobility Vehicle) 4×4 armoured vehicle which is currently deployed within Afghanistan for the Australian Army. Also on show is Thales Australia's Bushmaster Single Cab Utility prototype (shown), which may replace a fleet of over 2,000 Australian Defence Force field vehicles under evaluation for LAND 121 Phase 3 program's Medium Heavy Capability component. Thales Australia's Bushmaster Single Cab Utility has been selected for the next stage of the tender evaluation process in the medium-weight category. The Bushmaster armoured vehicle, developed by Thales Australia (formerly ADI Limited) in Australia is in full production at Thales's protected mobility systems manufacturing facility at Bendigo, Victoria.
