Rheinmetall will soon commence the delivery of 211 8x8 Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRV) to the Australian Army.
Order for Boxer vehicles worth $2.4 billion was placed in 2018. The contract included several variants of the Boxer with the reconnaissance variant – accounting for 133 of the 211 vehicles – equipped with Rheinmetall’s Lance turret system and armed with a 30mm automatic cannon.
Under Australia’s LAND 400 Phase 2 selection process, the Boxer CRV was chosen in 2016 as one of two candidates for Risk Mitigation Activity (RMA) trials, where the 8x8 wheeled armoured vehicle performed convincingly in the categories of survivability, mobility, firepower, and command & control.
More than 40 Australian companies will be included in the programme.
Rheinmetalls Lynx KF41 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) has been selected by the Commonwealth of Australia to compete in the Risk Mitigation Activity (RMA) trials for the $15 billion LAND 400 Phase 3 program. Lynx modular vehicles provide protection against blast, IED, direct and indirect fire, cluster munitions, and anti-tank guided missiles
Rheinmetall has offered submitted the Lynx Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) with the Lance turret, Lynx Manouevre Support Vehicle (MSV) in response to the Australian Armys Land 400 Phase 3 - Mounted Close Combat Capability Request For Tender (RFT).
