Plasan and Hanwha Defense Australia are working together on LAND 8116

Wednesday, December 14, 2022

Our journey with HDA and HAS has been an exceptional adventure and we are proud of the mutual accomplishments we achieved with Hanwha so far in the Make of the Huntsman SPH and AARV under program LAND8116.
The team spirit and cooperation of our two companies is something we take great pride in and the signature of the LAND8116 serial production agreement is an important milestone in our long and lasting partnership with Hanwha.

Hanwha Defense Australia:

It’s been a year to the day that the contract for LAND 8116 Protected Mobile Fires program was signed by the leaders of Australia and South Korea.

Plasan of Israel and Hanwha Defense Australia are working together on LAND 8116 to ensure the highest quality survivability systems are delivered to protect the Australian Army.

The protection solution consists of fixed and dismountable components that protect the vehicles and crew against a wide range of threats, in accordance with the customer requirements.

Building on the original contract around design, modelling & simulation and testing of the protection solution for the Huntsman vehicles, the companies have now implemented the contract change to include the production and delivery scope.

The contract change was signed in Seoul earlier last month by Plasan’s CEO Mr Dan Ziv and HDA Managing Director Mr Richard Cho.

The Huntsman protection solution delivers a capability and schedule critical part of the LAND 8116 project scope.

With the contract change, the protection solution moves from design to production, further cementing the strong partnership between Hanwha Aerospace companies and Plasan.
