By 2001 Australia was ready to begin the industry tendering process for the position of Prime Systems Integrator (PSI), but this was halted when the Minister for Defence, Mr Reith, was briefed on the advantages of a revised strategy based on the US Land Warrior Program (LW), which was considered to be the most advanced developmental soldier system in the world at that time. Fielding to the US Army was scheduled from late 2004, and so a political decision was taken to change the focus of L125 from an Australian development based on a systems approach to acquiring the US LW architecture (Reith, 2001).

The majority of textile systems use the same fabric type throughout their thickness, but there are examples of armour using varied types. For instance, the requirement for high cover factors is only for the layers in contact with the projectile, so it may be beneficial to have high cover factor fabric towards the impact face and coarser weave fabric to the rear. A preference for lower cover factor coarse fabric is economic, as cost tends to scale with thread count. Although BABT is not a common problem, there is a necessity to limit the deformation of the armour to a reasonable level.
