PROTECTED Mobility Vehicle (PMV) specialists have been collecting data from a Bushmaster involved in an IED strike in Afghanistan since survivability upgrade kits were fitted to Bushmasters in theatre earlier this year. 

      

The head of the six-man upgrade team that deployed to the MEAO earlier this year, Maj Eugene Tinning, Land Systems Division, said the damaged Bushmaster would provide valuable data on the effectiveness of the current upgrade as well as informing future improvements.

“We are continually evaluating what improvements can be made to make it safer for the guys to operate with,” Maj Tinning said.

Upgrade team member WO1 Simon Danger said the upgrade provided an increased level of force protection for soldiers operating with Bushmasters.
