The vehicles are all troop carrier variants equipped with Thales’s SOTAS M2 communication system, and deliveries will begin in 2015.
The contract also includes a five-year support package to ensure the highest levels of availability and performance.
Chris Jenkins, Thales Australia CEO, said: “The Jamaica Defence Force has longstanding interest in Bushmaster, and we are now very pleased to add them as an export customer.
The Bushmasters are ideally suited for both internal security and humanitarian operations. The inclusion of the support package demonstrates the customer’s trust in us to deliver and maintain an effective capability over several years.
