Hello GHQ,
in the catalog the Boxer IFV is listed in Germany. This armored infantry version with the 30mm cannon is not used in the German Bundeswehr, or has not been purchased for the Bundeswehr until now.

The Australians signed a contract in 2018 for 211 boxers (133 in the 30mm cannon version).
Since it is better if the boxer IFV in the catalog at "UK & Commonwealth" can be found, right?

The M1A1 of the Australian Army can also be found there.

This is good to know, Brutzel. I have a German panzer battalion, 2 tank, 1 Marder companies. Was thinking about adding a Puma or Boxer company. Now I can get the right Boxer.

Seen any evidence of deliveries to UK?

I do not know more than that.
"[...] the UK MoD disclosed its intent to order between 400 and 600 Boxer with options for a further 900, leading to a potential maximum procurement of 1500 vehicles."

So far no information about the equipment of the boxers was announced.

OK, current message (2. December 2019).
New planning of the Bundeswehr!!!!

"Boxer'Radschützenpanzer 'is to replace Wiesel"

"Over the next few years, the German army wants to replace its Waffenträger infantry with Boxer transport tanks with 30-millimeter machine guns. The first tactical exercises with the system, which has not yet been procured, there were already - but it is still open when how many of these weapons systems, referred to by the manufacturer Rheinmetall as Radschützenpanzer, are procured for the Bundeswehr."

Remember, if you are doing the British Boxer, you have to get the color scheme correct. It's not easy.

(Somehow I can't help but imagine the driver sounding exactly like Austin Powers. Yeah, Baby!)
