Armoured Engineer Group Vehicle

The mission changes - so does BOXER

The Armoured Engineer Group variant of BOXER will be deployed for the transport of troops and engineer group equipment. This variant enables the armoured engineer group to carry out the tactical military and other tasks assigned to them properly, under protection and over a sustained period of time. In a first batch the Dutch Army ordered 41 BOXER vehicles in the Armoured Engineer Group variant.

The Armoured Engineer Group variant has a driver, commander and gunner. It provides seating for six dismounts with space available for their personal equipment and an additional separate stowage section for munitions. It may be deployed as a support vehicle with other units or used for independent assignments such as route clearance, or as a protected work location during mine clearance or demolition operations.
 
The Armoured Engineer Group vehicle is very versatile and can be deployed for the following tasks:

  • Transport of personal
  • Transport of engineer group and group equipment
  • Transport of munitions and material for engineer tasks
  • Platform for the vehicle mounted weapon
