Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

I can see how Tracked Boxer shouldn’t be the focus at this time. Let’s get wheeled Boxers into the Army first and see how it can be utilized. However, that should not stop the UK government from investing in the program at this time. Just as they’ve invested in various programs for the future, this ...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

IMO, tracked Boxer is something that the British Army could take a look into, mostly because they Boxer will become its main armoured vehicle. If there is a need for such a vehicle, of course. … Thank you for your input, much appreciated. For all the reasons you listed, I believe they are why UK go...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

Also I didn't say there were no downside, in fact I think there are plenty of downside that we do not know yet. You said you couldn't see any downside. I presented some potential downsides. I don't see a downside of getting involved with he program. I should have made that clearer, my apologize for...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

If we are talking about replacing Ajax ( if it fails ) then we need to move fast as we are now using Warrior in the armoured Cavalry role. For me this means we can't chase another rabbit hole i.e tracked Boxer and there for it would mean a new comp between KF-41 , CV-90 and Redback Also for me with...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

I think you're just being pedantic. Probably. Doesn't mean I'm wrong though. Also, no one is saying, "if it fits, it good to go!" Not exactly, but you're saying that you can see no downsides and Jim is saying it's illogical to do anything else. I think that there could well be downsides a...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

I couldn't agree more with Ittome on this. No surprises there. If the British Army is adamant that only a tracked platform can carry out the IFV and Recce roles then the Tracked Boxer platform is by far the most sensible choice. The savings in maintenance alone would make it worth it, but adding th...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

I don’t see any downside of procuring tracked drive modules. You don't know if they're any good, you don't know if the existing modules are compatible with the different vibrations and you don't know how much they cost. That could be true, but I trust ARTEC, and to some degree RBSL, to have a vehic...

Re: Boxer / Mechanised Infantry Vehicle (MIV)

Maybe MoD can utilize the investment in the Lockheed turret by mating it with tracked Boxer. Now you can have both tracked and wheeled IFV. Choose the drive module depending on what is needed. One of the concern for wheeled Boxer was mobility in wet and muddy European and SE Asia, maybe this solves ...
