Thales group to showcase the update Hawkei highly protected vehicle at MSPO 2016

The Thales group will organize a public exposition to showcase its  update Hawkei highly protected vehicle at the International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO will take place in Kielce in Poland from September 06th to 09th 2016.

For the first few September days, the Kielce’s International Defence Industry Exhibition becomes the world’s defence centre. The Europe’s third-largest military exhibition is also ranked among the globe’s most important defense industry events.

The trade show is held in Targi Kielce; this will be the showcase for first-time presentations of military equipment and cutting-edge technologies.


The Hawkei is a 7-tonne, 4×4, highly mobile, highly protected tactical vehicle, built by Thales in Australia. The Australian Government will purchase 1100 locally built Hawkei protected vehicles and over 1000 trailers to strengthen our defence force. This leading-edge helicopter-deployable light vehicle represents the next generation in protected mobility, ready to export.
