The Australian government has requested up to 850 JCREW I1B1 systems (533 vehicle-mounted and 317 dismounted); spare and repair parts; support and test equipment; technical exchanges, publications and technical documentation; support equipment; engineering change proposals; classified software/loadsets; training; US government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services; and other related elements of logistics support.
