Hawkei. Fully networked to help you make the right decisions. Developed to meet the specific operational requirements of the Australian Defence Force, Thales Hawkei is an innovative, high performance military vehicle. Hawkei meets the key global challenge of 'protected mobility' for defence forces: light enough (7 tonnes) to be rapidly deployed underslung a CH-47 Chinook helicopter and designed to deliver high levels of exportable power to support advanced integral vehicle electronic architecture. Comfortably accommodating 5 crew, with blast and ballistic protection integrated into the design from the outset, Hawkei features protection partner Plasan's B-kit scalable armour which can be fitted in the field in less than 30 minutes. Designed to enable the warfighter to make better decisions, Hawkei delivers better battlefield outcomes. To find out more, scan the QR code or visit thalesgroup.com.au Versatility?
