The Boxer is a highly protected 8x8 wheeled vehicle.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, peacekeeping and humanitarian relief operations within complex threat environments requires a new military vehicle concept.

The Boxer is a true mother ship providing multiple functions for its users and communication interfaces for participation in network-enabled warfare. The APC variant 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 mobility performances.

So far, approximately 1,500 vehicles in twenty different versions are under contract in the four NATO member states Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania and the United Kingdom. NATO partner state Australia has opted for the BOXER as well.

ARTEC GmbH was founded in 1999 and is a joint venture between Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG, Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH and Rheinmetall Defence Nederland B.V. The company coordinates the series production and serves as the point of contact for all export issues relating to the Boxer.
