Boxer AFV
The Boxer is a German-Dutch multirole armoured fighting vehicle designed to accomplish a number of operations through the use of installable mission modules
About this creation
The Boxer project was originally started as a joint venture between Germany, Britain and France, but France left the programme in 1999, followed by Britain in 2003. In early 2001, however, the Netherlands joined the project. The first Boxer prototype was delivered to Germany in 2002 and the first Dutch prototype was delivered in October 2003. Production deliveries were scheduled to commence in 2004, but the numerous design changes and political problems delayed production until 2008.



The Netherlands has requested around 400 Boxers to replace the M577 (a M113 varient) and the support variants of the YPR-765 (a homegrown M113 varient) in the Royal Netherlands Army, with the Netherlands having already confirmed the procurement of 200 vehicles in autumn of 2006. On December 13, 2006 the German parliament approved the procurement of 272 Boxers for the Bundeswehr to replace shares of its M113 and Fuchs APCs. When the high numbers of Fuchs' become obsolete by 2020, more Boxers are likely to follow.



The Boxer is an eight-wheeled MRAV, easily dwarfing most contemporary vehicles with its size. At 33 ton combat weight, it is also about 10 tons heavier than many other contemporary vehicles within the same role. It is designed to carry out a variety of utility missions with maximum flexibility; this is achieved via several different "mission modules" specialized for various tasks which are available separately from the vehicle. The base vehicle is independent of the modules, and modules can be interchanged within an hour. Each module incorporates a primary safety cell with a triple floor. The module depicted here is the standard APC module because I was to lazy to do the rest.



Known modules include an APC module, an IFV module, a module for a 120mm mortar, a command module and an ambulance module. A module capable of mounting the SysFla anti aircraft system is reportedly in development.



The basic vehicle shell is composed of hard steel, and "modular armour" is sandwiched between it and the vehicle cell. The three elements are held together by fastening bolts. The modular armour is a specialized ceramic mix. The hull is resistant against top attack bomblets and AP mines. Contemporaries of the Boxer include the Russian BTR-80, the American Stryker, the French VCBI and Italian B1 Centauro

Excellent rendering of the Boxer. Man, 33 tons sounds like a lot for a wheeled AFV!! The dark camo is nice as well.
