Alternatively, besides the obvious fact that the AS-90 is cheaper as we already have it in service, what does the AS-90 have with regards to capability that the Boxer/RCH 155 doesn't? I believe I already mentioned above that I believe the latter would be capable of providing support to both the Ai and Mech Infantry Brigades. Agreed that the original proposal was to find a platform or system to provide artillery support to the "Strike" Brigades, but if it is found to be more capable that the AS-90 as it is now serious consideration must be taken of having a fleet of common platforms compared to investing in the AS-90 which is already over 25 years old and has not received any major upgrades during that time.
