Infantry Fighting Vehicle LANCE

The mission changes - so does BOXER

The Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) BOXER LANCE represents the most modern wheeled IFV currently available on the market. BOXER’s superior level of protection, excellent cross country mobility and the latest modular turret technology enables BOXER LANCE to dominate the modern battlefield.

BOXER LANCE is operated by a crew of 3 and can carry up to 8 dismounts. Its design philosophy of modular Mission Module and LANCE turret system allows for maximum versatility and performance on a common BOXER Drive Module.

This IFV variant is armed with the famous Rheinmetall MK30-2 dual feed medium calibre cannon with air burst capability and can carry two additional ready-to-fire SPIKE anti-tank guided missiles.

The manned LANCE turret offers a variety of optional configurations including an independent commander’s sight for hunter-killer or even killer-killer capability by the integration of a secondary Remote Control Weapon Station and features:

  • Fully stabilized 30 mm Rheinmetall MK30-2 machine cannon with air burst capability (also suitable for other types and calibres),
  • 7.62 mm x 51 mm coaxial machine gun,
  • integrated fully digital stabilized fire control system supporting integrated armament and
  • best protection of the crew (completely in Mission Module), best overview (closed and open hatch operations).

BOXER LANCE provides its crew with extraordinary survivability and protection against mines (AP, AT), IEDs, corresponding ballistic threats (incl. artillery fragments), NBC threats and detection (radar, noise, solar loading) in addition to its superior firepower.
