If you have designed your stowage racks to use the same fixings as your seats then you can just take the racks out and replace with seats.

Jane's report that Ares variant has been shown with Pearson's Engineering bridge fitted. Could be something the British Army procure?

Interesting that the split in the overall order went slightly down for Joint Fires (FV524 sprung back to life?); can't remember if this version (with 39 ordered) was the beneficiary, as the contracted total has not, to my knowledge, moved.

Before the further order batches were cut, and the main worry was to get the numbers of Ajax match the 5 rgmnts' needs, there were 30-36 Warrior conversions in plans to provide gap crossing for medium formations, without needing to send a chally version along
- that same kit has been sold to Indonesia and Malesia, fitted on top of a lighter carrier (yonks ago)

The Strike Brigades are probably going to rely on the lorry launched bridging systems rather then use a version of Ajax or Boxer for the role. The kit is already in service.
