The scope of the project is to supply fully assembled and tested Boxer MIV power packs over a 10-year period. The finished units will then be delivered to WFEL in Stockport, where they will be integrated into the Boxer vehicles.

The multi-million-pound project is one of the most prestigious Land Defence contracts and solidifies DBS’s position as a key supplier to the UK MoD. As DBS embarks on this new project with KMW, they not only bring extensive experience and expertise as a proven major sub-system supplier, being versed in UK MoD procedures, but also a significant contribution to the stipulated localised content. The contribution made by world-renowned UK Defence suppliers like DBS ensures the UK develops, retains and maintains its Defence capabilities for many years to come.
