Over the last few months, the BOXER in the new Armoured Personnel Carrier APC variant has been tested under field conditions by the German infantry school. It has been the first opportunity for the future user to verify the functional requirements within their own responsibility. The vehicle was equipped with a 40-millimetere remote controlled grenade launcher, as foreseen for the series vehicles.
Preparations for the start-up of series production are ongoing. The BOXER will be manufactured on two production lines in Germany and on one production line in the Netherlands.
Deliveries of the series vehicles to the German customer commence in September 2009, with The Netherlands receiving their first vehicles at the beginning of 2011.
