AJAX vehicles will transform the Army's medium armour and advanced intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capability. They will be able to conduct sustained, expeditionary, full spectrum operations with a minimal logistic footprint, in a wide range of combat situations and potential future operating environments. As it is brought into service, AJAX will undergo rigorous trials and experimentation to understand and further optimise its combat effectiveness.
