The Multirole Armoured Wheeled ‘Mothership’ of the German Infantry.
Since the introduction of the multirole armoured wheeled vehicle GTK Boxer (nicknamed the ‘mothership of the infantry’) no other vehicle family in the Bundeswehr has seen a more intensive modernisation effort. With the most modern ‘A2’ standard now being fielded the following variants are currently in active service: Armoured Personnel Carrier, Command Vehicle, Heavy Armoured Ambulance Vehicle and Driver Training Vehicle.
This publication covers the history of the entire Boxer-family and goes into extensive detail with its most modern production batches, the A1 and in particular the A2, with many hitherto unpublished in-detail and in-action photos.
Excellent reference book for modellers I would recommend this to other modellers and anyone interested in military vehicles
More of a bookzine than a book but, having said that, it’s an excellent overview of a vehicle that will become very important to our Army over the next few years. Text is in German and English and illustrations are many and of good quality. I believe we have ordered 500 of these 8 wheel monsters and can’t wait to see one in the flesh as it were. The Boxer has been in service for some years in European armed forces including Germany and, further away, Australia, we were part of the development team only to pull out in 2004, now we are back in the programme. Highly recommended if, as I said, it’s a bit light weight.
