The Netherlands was represented at the event by LtCol John Lussenburg from DMO, the Dutch National Programme Coordinator for the BOXER Programme.

The Netherlands identified over the last years that the operational concept had changed and in this respect the numbers of the different variants ordered were no longer reflecting the actual needs. Additional Engineer vehicles were required instead of Cargo and Command Post Vehicles. Because of this, the Netherlands requested to change the numbers of these variants.

The contract amendment increases the number of Engineer vehicles to 39, reduces the number of Cargo vehicles to 15 and reduces the Command Post vehicles to 24.

The new vehicle mix contract was prepared in a short timeframe during 2016 in close cooperation between OCCAR-EA, the Netherlands Official Services and ARTEC.

At this moment it is planned that the last Netherlands vehicle will be delivered in February 2018.
