The Icons have been in the files for 7 years......eventually I will get around to re-working the gun ( now done for the Boxer and the Puma )

Since two-man sniper teams (shooter & spotter) are standard since snipers were officially reintroduced I guess we'll just have to be creative!

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

I wonder how much of that had to do with Australia having chosen the BOXER for their LAND 400 Program. There was some industry speculation that given the degrees of terrain etc. that the APC's from the start faced some of the hardest endurance tests to date for those manufacturers. It really says something about the down selected final two candidates and specifically for the BOXER in general. The UK definitely could've done worse, that being said, they could change their mind again as well. They are after all facing some tough competition as the first ref. indicates. Watch for the TERRIX 8x8.

Just read Andy's post it sure would seem like the BOXER has the inside track. I had forgotten that the UK helped develop it. After reading it though, I remembered posting several articles on the topic in regards to the beginning of the FRES Program, how long ago has that been now!?! A sign you're getting older, THE CLOCK'S MOVING FASTER!!

Well I guess it now official, UK has apparently signed the contract with ARTEC. The BOXER is in. I don't know if this new camouflage scheme will be effective though in the field however!?!

Yeah but the question remaining is......which version is going to be the "MIV"..... the basic APC shown in the photo or the IFV with the 30mm...

Fallout Re: APC Development and related topics.

I honestly can't answer that question right now. With it not projected to be in service until 2023, there is sometime left for them to make that final decision. If they follow Australia's lead then the answer would be yes. The plan is for them to be integrated with the AJAX but I feel if the AJAX falls behind the simple answer would be yes. I can also see where there would be one for each section of BOXER's as well for fire support. for now 2C/10P. All we can do is wait and see.

Regards,
Pat

There are a host of possibilities. The first one that springs to my mind is they may want a IFV version but using the same turret and 40mm gun as the Ajax.... or use the Ajax turret with a Rarden instead of a 30mm MK 30.....when common sense mates with national politics anything can happen.....
