Infantry Fighting Vehicle SAMSON

The mission changes - so does BOXER

The Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) variant of BOXER with the Remote Weapon Station Samson MK II represents a modern wheeled Infantry Fighting Vehicle. Combining BOXER’s inherent high level of protection, the unique mobility and the latest weapon technology BOXER IFV Samson represents the necessary capacities to face current and future requirements.

The protection of the turret is adaptable for a wide range of missions and to face different threats, as is BOXER.

BOXER IFV Samson enables forces to effectively close the fire loop with varying degrees of firepower, from 7.62 mm on the coaxial machine gun, through 25 mm to 40 mm main gun (western and eastern versions, including air burst capabilities) and up to ATGM (Anti- Tank Guided Missile).

The turret provides a hunter-killer capability during day and night. Sufficient firepower is provided by a flexible weapons suite with the M242 25 mm gun, the MK44 30 mm gun or the 2A42 30 mm gun.

BOXER IFV Samson can transport up to 8 soldiers, besides the driver, commander and gunner.

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