 Jamaica Defense Forces to acquire 12 Bushmaster armoured personnel carrier from Thales Australia

Dec. 4, 2013 Pacific Sentinel

 

Cabinet of Jamaica government has approved a five-year recapitalisation project for the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) which will see the JDF replacing obsolete and mainly unserviceable V150 armoured cars in its fleet. Under the project, the JDF (Jamaica Defense Forces) will acquire 12 Thales Australia Bushmaster armoured personnel carriers (APCs) a report from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) said.

 

At present, the JDF has a complement of 14 Cadillac Gage V150s, 10 of which were acquired 37 years ago in 1976 and the other four were acquired in 1985, according to the OPM.

 

Over the course of their service life within the JDF, the vehicles have been utilized as critical enablers in many high risk situations such as internal security deployments in support of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) as well as pre and post disaster response and rescue operations.

 

Delivery of the armoured vehicles will commence in 2015.
