Australia has agreed to transfer 100 Boxer heavy weapon carriers to Germany under a $1 billion deal signed between the two nations.

Anthony Albanese, Australia’s Prime Minister, landed in Berlin on Sunday night and confirmed plans to seal the deal.

“Today I’m in Berlin announcing one of the biggest defence deals in Australian history,” Albanese said.

He said he signed an in-principle agreement to build Boxer Heavy Weapon Carriers for Germany in Queensland. “The project will create well paid manufacturing jobs for Australians. And mean a boost of more than $1 billion to the Australian economy.”

Australia’s Minister for Defence Industry, Pat Conroy and his German counterpart, the Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister of Defence Thomas Hitschler signed a Letter of Cooperation and began formal negotiations to export the vehicles in March.
