Germany’s largest weapons manufacturer Rheinmetall unveiled a brand-new version of the Lynx Combat Support Vehicle (CSV).
The company did so during an event at the company’s Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) in Redbank, Australia.
The CSV is proposed as a replacement for the Australian Army’s aging fleet of armored personal carriers.
The Lynx CSV development was kept secret until now and it is one of the most “sophisticated” military machines to be built in Australia.
“The Lynx CSV was designed by Australian engineers and manufactured at MILVEHCOE using Australian steel and our industry network of more than 100 partners,“ said Gary Stewart, Rheinmetall Managing Director.
“It is uniquely Australian as a ‘work horse’ vehicle, even taking on the distinct function of a ute,” he added. Thus, the aim is for it to be a vehicle that can be used in a variety of situations, with many different purposes.
According to the developers, the Lynx CSV provided significant flexibility in how soldiers operate in the field, the type of equipment they can carry and the combat support roles they can perform.
The Lynx CSV is a game-changer for armies and would enable soldiers to complete a range of missions while fully protected. With the CSV, soldiers can perform recovery, repair, maneuver support and support logistics using a vehicle with similarities to the existing Lynx IFV.
The similarities between the usual Lynx IFV and the new CSV make it more efficient and straightforward for soldiers to simply receive the vehicle and use it, and that is applicable to armed forces across the world that use the system.
The Lynx CSV featured additional onboard fuel capacity to support refueling other vehicles in the field; a roof top mounted crane capable of lifting more than five tons, allowing it to pull other vehicles utilizing the crane, interchangeable power pack; and excavation attachments including a clam shell bucket and rock breaker.
The modular remote weapon station can be configured with a range of weapons and ammunition from 7.62mm, 12.7mm up to 40mm grenade.
Australia has rapidly began modernizing its armed forces. In addition to improving the army’s hardware, it signed the AUKUS agreements with London and Washington and is beginning work on nuclear submarines.
The deal with France was abandoned, but the rushed militarization continues in the face of the perceived threat coming from China. With US President Joe Biden promising to rush to Taiwan’s help “if China attacks”, Canberra may have to also mobilize its forces in the case of a significant escalation.
