Description
The Boxer is a German-Dutch multirole armoured fighting vehicle designed to accomplish a number of operations through the use of installable mission modules. It is produced by the ARTEC GmbH (ARmoured vehicle TEChnology) industrial group, and the programme is being managed by OCCAR (Organisation for Joint Armament Cooperation). The expanded range of tasks assigned to modern armies requires optimally protected, highly mobile transport vehicles that can be reliably used with a high payload capacity under extremely adverse environmental conditions. The BOXER meets these demands head on. Its modular construction allows a multiplicity of mission-specific vehicle variants. Therefore, the vehicle family consists of a uniform drive module as well as user-specific deployment modules. Its comprehensive protection system against mines, IEDs and ballistic threats ensures maximum crew survivability. The diverse spectrum of challenges within the concept of the Three-Block-War of high-intensity combat actions, peace keeping and humanitarian relief operations within complex threat environments requires a new military vehicle concept. BOXER with its unique modularity is the vehicle that is flexible enough to fulfil this wide spectrum of diverse mission requirements with unique survivability, reliability and future growth potential. The BOXER is a true mother ship providing multiple functions for its users and communication interfaces for participation in network enabled warfare. The flexibility of its modularity allows BOXER to be easily adapted to meet diverse mission requirements, in rapidly changing circumstances and global environments.
The APC variant of BOXER is a true mother ship for soldiers with multiple functions for the infantry and interfaces for network enabled warfare. The integral growth potential allows adaptation to future emerging military roles, or changing requirements without degrading the mobility performances. In a first batch the German Army ordered 125 BOXER vehicles in the APC variant. The current APC variant supports leading edge communication systems e.g. IdZ (infantry soldier of the future) of the German Army. In which the APC provides interfaces to each soldier for updating navigational and tactical information as well as power outlets for charging the personnel electronic equipment. The mission module contains state-of-the art C3I architecture to integrate the BOXER APC variant in modern battlefield scenarios. The Boxer APC can transport up to 8 dismounts, besides driver, commander and gunner.

Armament
The APC variant of the Boxer vehicle is s equipped with a remotely weapon station armed with a 12.7 mm machine or an automatic 40 mm grenade launcher. The weapon station is reconfigurable to suit the specific national requirement and the module for mission specific equipment is replaceable within one hour.
Design and protection
The special characteristic of the Boxer is the modular design, with joint driving as well as a special mission module. This concept particularly differentiates the Boxer from other 8x8 armoured vehicles, which are offered as alternative solutions. The hull of the Boxer is composed of hard steel, and modular armour. The modular design of a multi-layer floor concept and safety cell provides a unique overmatch behaviour that minimises the "catastrophic kill" risk from mine and IED attacks. The underlying protection philosophy of the BOXER provides a multi-hit capability and sufficient residual mobility after attacks. The BOXER is fully operative with the whole crew - even driver and commander - under armour. In order to prevent an impact, the BOXER follows a new generation of stealth design, low acoustic, infrared and radar signatures. In addition the Boxer can be fitted with passive armour (incl. ceramics), reactive armour and active protection systems. The mine protection and running gear of Boxer are designed to ensure residual mobility after a mine attack.
Propulsion
The Boxer power pack consists of a MTU model 8V199 TE20 diesel engine developing 530 kW coupled to an Allison model HD4070 fully automatic transmission with seven forward and three reverse gears. The Boxer can run at a maximum speed of 105 km/h with a maximum range of 1,000 km/h. Excellent on and off-road mobility is achieved by the permanent 8x8 all-wheel drive, modern all independent wheel suspension and high performance power pack with automatic gearbox. The Boxer is able to achieve full performance under exreme environmental and worst terrain conditions.
Accessories
Rapid Strategic Mobility of Boxer in a combat-ready configuration is ensured by the capability of being deployed by road, train, sea or air (A400M). Standard equipment of Boxer includes air conditioning, NBC protection system and fire extinguishing system for the engine compartment. The Boxer is especially hardened to survive a tactical nuclear explosion at medium distances. In option the Boxer can be equipped with navigation system, smoke grenade launcher, rear view camera, and crew seats with airbags.
