The Australian Government is supporting the Government of Ukraine by providing 20 Bushmasters, including two of the ambulance variants, to aid Ukraine’s response to Russia’s illegal aggression.

The Australian-built BushmasterProtected Mobility Vehicle is well suited to provide protection to the Ukrainian armed forces soldiers and Ukrainian civilians against mines and improvised explosive devices, shrapnel from artillery and small-arms fire.

The vehicles have been painted olive green to suit the operating environment. Additionally, a Ukrainian flag is painted on either side with the words “United with Ukraine” stenciled in English and Ukrainian to acknowledge our commitment and support to the Government and people of Ukraine. The ambulances will have the traditional red cross emblem. The Bushmaster Protected Mobility Vehicles are fitted with radios, a global positioning system and additional bolt-on armour to increase their protection.
