Boxer Infantry fighting vehicle

The IFV variant of BOXER represents the leading edge of wheeled Infantry Fighting Vehicles. Combining the BOXER inherent high level of protection and the unique mobility with the latest turret technology, the IFV variant presents state-of-the-art capabilities to face current requirements.

The BOXER IFV variant, equipped with the LANCE turret system is completely in line with the modular BOXER philosophy as the LANCE turret itself features a new modular design. It thereby ensures maximum flexibility and an optimized capability for further upgrades for changing requirements. Also the protection of the turret is adaptable for a wide range of missions and to face different threats – as does the BOXER itself.

The IFV variant can transport up to 8 soldiers, besides the driver. A variety of individual modules allows for either a two-man or a remotely controlled turret design – one Concept with two Configurations.

The turret provides a hunter-killer capability, which is unique in a medium calibre turret.
