History
  • The Boxer armored vehicle project, initiated in 1993 by France and Germany, saw the UK join in 1996. After France’s exit in 1999, the Netherlands joined in 2001. The project produced twelve prototypes and introduced the “Boxer” name in 2002. The UK departed the project in 2003, while the Netherlands and Germany proceeded with orders of 200 and 272 vehicles, respectively, with the Dutch deliveries starting in 2013 and the first German Boxer delivered in 2009.

This is essentially the same version Australia purchased and are building?
Afaik Australia will also build some of the Boxers for the German army.

australian ones have differences over german ones mostly in systems and other stuff, for example this one dosent have seats for infantryman since it wasnt meant to carry infantry

Not necessarily. This variant features the Lance 2 turret while the Australian one has the standard Lance turret.

during phase 2 australian one did use lance 2 turret but it didnt feature all the electronics this one has, mainly because the electronics the german army required were different

Do you plan on doing a suggestion for the Boxer with the Puma turret as well? I think it’s better because it gets MUSS, which will hopefully be fixed one day.

That’s the one… We need a suggestion for the international forums though

Solid suggestion. A much needed vehicle as a researchable analog to the Lithuanian Vilkas. +1

[Erster Schwerer Waffenträger Infanterie an die Bundeswehr übergeben]

The Bundeswehr is getting the Boxer with the aforementioned Lance turret, which in my opinion is also much more visually appealing. Of course, I would really like this vehicle to be added to the research tree. In general, I would like to welcome the Boxer family, something similar has been done with the Wiesel family in the past.
