Armoured Fighting Vehicles: Operating Costs

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what estimate he has made of the cost per track/road mile, excluding crew costs, of operating the (a) Warrior, (b) Bulldog and (c) Mastiff armoured vehicles. (252863)

The estimated cost per track kilometre, excluding crew and fuel costs, for financial year 2009-10 is as follows:

£ per kilometre

Warrior

104.50

Bulldog

43.38

These costs include first and second line repair costs of equipment in the Field Army, together with equipment support costs.

Information on operating costs for wheeled vehicles is not held in a format that would enable an estimate per kilometre to be made, therefore no costs are available for Mastiff.
