Dutch confirm Bushmaster Mid-Life update

February 14, 2022 - The Netherlands is to undertake a major upgrade of its Bushmaster protected mobility vehicle fleet.

Defence Minister Henk Kamp told parliament in mid-December last year that all 102 Dutch Army Bushmasters will undergo a mid-life update (MLU) to extend service life into the mid-2030s.

Following its introduction into Dutch service in 2006, the Netherlands has deployed the Bushmaster extensively to Afghanistan and Mali, where the vehicle excelled in its key capability areas of mobility and blast protection.
