Rheinmetall’s Boxer combat reconnaissance vehicle (CRV) balances the key military requirements of protection, mobility and firepower in an unrivalled combination that can be rapidly transitioned into service and easily supported through life. The vehicle is based around a uniform drive module and interchangeable mission modules.
The selection of the Boxer CRV for the Department of Defence’s LAND 400 Phase 2 contract will see Australia join leading nations that have also selected this vehicle including the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands, and Lithuania. The Lance turret fitted to the vehicle utilises the latest technologies that allow the Boxer CRV to be uniquely aware of its environment, with advanced systems to automatically detect, characterise and track threats on the battlefield. The turret features a range of scalable effects, including non-lethal systems, the latest air-burst cannon technologies and a guided anti-tank missile system that allows the crew to engage the most aggressive threats on the battlefield.
Lynx KF41 IFV
The Lynx infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) has been designed for maximum modularity and features the Lance turret. It offers a vehicle system with unmatched levels of survivability, mobility, lethality, knowledge and growth that will excel in close combat operations.
Heavily armed, highly protected and extremely agile, this tracked armoured vehicle is built to assure successful outcomes on the battlefield. It lends itself to military operations ranging from peace enforcement missions to high-intensity combat.
Should Rheinmetall be the successful tenderer for the Department of Defence’s LAND 400 Phase 3 project, the Lynx KF41 will be built at the MILVEHCOE in Redbank, Ipswich.
