Britain armed with Boxers

43
The British Defense Ministry has officially announced the resumption of participation in the Boxer MIV BTR development program (Boxer mechanized infantry vehicle), reports Warspot, citing the portal ukdefencejournal.org.uk, from which the British left for 2003 to develop domestic combat vehicles.


Britain armed with Boxers


Thus, the British plan to quickly launch the production of new armored personnel carriers and get the first vehicles for service in 2023. At the same time, the British intend to bring the localization of the “domestic” “Boxers” to 60%. The need for the British army in new armored personnel carriers is about 500 units. At the same time, the military department intends to spend on their purchase about £ 2 billion.

The Boxer is a multipurpose armored personnel carrier with 8 × 8 wheel formula. This German-Dutch development has a modular design that allows it to carry various weapons, including automatic guns and anti-tank missiles. In addition, based on the Boxer, mobile command posts, armored medical vehicles, etc. Due to the additional composite armor, the BTR Boxer is considered one of the most secure machines in its class. With a full combat load, the armored personnel carrier weighs 36,5 t and is capable of speeds up to 103 km / h.

      Heh heh heh ... the hegemon is now not the same - in the USA, the British BAE Systems won the contract for new armored personnel carriers for armored brigades in exchange for the M113.
      The U.S. Army made the final choice under the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) program, which provides for the replacement of 2897 M113 tracked armored personnel carriers and vehicles based on them in Armored Brigade Combat Teams - ABCTs. The choice cannot be called unexpected, because it was made in favor of the only remaining proposal in the AMPV program - the project put forward by BAE Systems Corporation of a tracked armored personnel carrier, which is actually a crazy version of the standard M2 / M3 Bradley American Army BMP.
      It is planned that in the future up to 300 AMPV cars will be delivered per year with the complete replacement of the entire BTR M113 fleet in ABST within ten years from the start of production. The total cost of the entire program will be about $ 13 billion.

        - HOW did they get to this? request This "nonsense" was shit like that, and now take it as a New Technique? Well, I understand in Shumeria, all the specialists and production have died out or dumped abroad, but in the USA how did you get to such an absurdity? Russia - survived the terrible collapse of the USSR, the deadly, monstrous 90, but betrayed to the mountain - just a lot of differently made new (better than it was) techniques. Mattresses - just bloomed and smelled, pulled (bought up) all the specialists and those documentation that they wanted - the output is "old shit." fool belay I seriously refuse to understand this madhouse.
        For the only thing in the United States that has developed well and has overtaken the whole World is the UAV, which is wonderful, but you won’t get a wunderwafer and you won’t leave for a bright future.

          Everything is simple: unification, standardization, cheapness. In ABST, the main vehicle is the Bradley, so using its chassis for armored personnel carriers and vehicles based on it is the most rational solution.

          And you look - what they change on AMPV. BTR M113, which was still at war in Vietnam, the Yankees are still livelier than all the living. And not somewhere deep behind, but in brigade battle groups. And not only in the role of auxiliary vehicles (KShM and health), but also as an armored personnel carrier and self-propelled mortar.
          As a result, on December 23, 2014, the US Army issued BAE Systems a contract worth $ 382 million to conduct a 52-month OCD program and test its machine under the AMPV program. The contract provides for the manufacture of 29 pre-production vehicles of all five planned options (armored personnel carrier, command and control vehicle, medical and sanitary vehicle, medical and emergency vehicle, 120-mm self-propelled mortar) and conducting an extensive test program

          "Motolyga" in the American way. smile
          And there will be another competition - to replace the same M113 in the division link.

            Yes, who would argue thatunification, etc. - This is wonderful, but let’s say “delirium” - the wildest shit. The mattresses themselves made a film about him, it was painfully epic shnyaga - slow, big, cardboard, small. And with all these shortcomings - they put it in the first orders. belay . Yes, motoliga, both we and they have a useful thing in the household, but not to the same extent. So you and I can see a reduction in cost when unifying in Russia, China, even in Germany, but in the USA fool ? In the USA, their defense industry does not even know (and does not understand) such a word - cheapening negative . There is only one thing - an "increase in the budget", sometimes "justified", sometimes "unjustified" (with the greed of the military-industrial complex already completely extreme), and sometimes forced - as with the Aviks and the Fu-35. tongue
            Let's be honest - the Americans and I fought twice, in Korea and Vietnam, and even that was a greatly reduced option. In both cases, the mattresses raked not illusory mmmmm well, you understand repeat , I already have 5 serifs. All other "wars" they had with small, scattered partisans. Even with Iraq, they fought mm "strange." There were only a few “normal” battles, one in a tiny port town that held on almost even after the capture of the Capital good
            That is, American weapons have always been worse than ours. As soon as they got some kind of innovation that gives an advantage, our answer not only “beat them”, but also satisfied the response problems. What is particularly “funny” manifested in Korea, when we responded to their radar with a cheap radiation sensor. tongue good . Even their own Abrams, the first one was a ogre from our T-74s in the desert, who generally didn’t look for them at all and didn’t even know that they had "worked out" the best tank in world history "(c) Discovery laughing

            I agree, but let me - this is New, with new materials, with new modules and principles of war (the same protection against explosions) good . Moreover, many options - this is the choice for the Army - which is better for them, whereas mattresses - they’re balabol "about star wars, lasers", etc. , and according to the facts - even armored personnel carriers cannot make a new one.

    For some reason, the British have long been unlucky in football, boxing, or armored vehicles. The apotheosis of British stupidity in this topic is the memorable Saxon with which they tried to fight against the IRA. In general, besides a good tank "Centurion", the British have nothing outstanding in armored vehicles.

        Even after spreading normally, they could not, other Empires left after death - dear, culture, somewhere science. Impudent - leaving did everything after the bottom was "scorched earth".
        And they weren’t so good with equipment either - they didn’t learn to fly, tanks were always crap, even their favorite “toy” - the fleet, managed to make a shit. What now, that before they all surpassed them somewhere, then the Germans, then the Americans, even the Japanese, and they made the best battleship in the world. Late true, but still the best. bully

    Reasonable. Probably right are those who consider Bokser, so far, the best in its class. In Europe, the requirements for the unification of armaments (expensive to develop) of allies are increasing, saving finances and simplifying logistics. In the same way, the English 7000-8000 ton frigate (?!) Type 26 is one of the two remaining in the pan-European tender for the German Bundesmarine, along with the Dutch Damen - the Germans dropped out, competition ...
