The Army's "troubled" programme to build the new Ajax armoured vehicle "has turned a corner" according to the defence secretary.
Ben Wallace said he was confident recent fixes had put the project back on track after a series of embarrassing setbacks and delays.
The £5.5bn Ministry of Defence (MoD) project has been running for 12 years.
It promised to deliver 589 armoured vehicles, with the first ones due to enter service in 2019.

The aim was to provide a family of hi-tech vehicles for battle, including reconnaissance, troop carrying and recovery and repair.
Ajax is armed with a 40mm cannon, which can be fired on the move, and carries a suite of sensors to identify targets.
