Wheeled Armoured Vehicles

The international deployment of rapid reaction forces on peace-keeping and peace-enforcing missions is gaining increasing importance, thus raising the demand for light, mobile vehicles which offer appropriate protection for the crew in line with the threat faced.

Thanks to its flexibility, mobility and therefore rapid operational readiness, the range of wheeled armoured vehicles produced by Rheinmetall provides airmobile forces with ideal support.

Boxer – Armoured transport vehicle

The Boxer armoured transport vehicle is being produced under a bi-national programme. Highly mobile, it is a state-of-the-art wheeled vehicle whose modular design permits a wide variety of mission-specific configurations. Consisting of a uniform drive module, the Boxer vehicle family's user-specific mission modules can be quickly exchanged. A number of mission variants are currently under development, including a troop carrier for transporting an infantry section, a field ambulance, a combat engineering section vehicle, C4I and C2 command vehicles, a logistics vehicle and a battlefield maintenance vehicle.
