The General Service B-vehicle fleet comprises a broad range of light and medium/heavy wheeled vehicles used by the Australian Defence Force (ADF), consisting of approximately 6,000 assets. Most vehicles in the B-vehicle fleet are being progressively replaced under LAND 121 and JP 2097. Land Rover variants have been progressively phased out as the G-Wagon variants have been introduced into service. The transition of the medium/heavy fleet began in February 2017 with the first deliveries of medium and heavy trucks under LAND 121 Phase 3B.

During 2017-18, the focus will be on the continuing disposal of Land Rover vehicles and starting the transition out of service of the Mack and Unimog fleets, as the new Rheinmetall MAN medium and heavy trucks are delivered to ADF units. Australian industry will continue to be engaged to explore options to overcome obsolescence issues. Fleet rationalisation, and other means of driving down maintenance costs (e.g. extended service intervals, reclamation of parts), will continue to be implemented across the fleets.
