Australia Starts Training on BOXER

Five Vehicles Delivered, Sixth Imminent

BOXER 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRV) being delivered to the Australian Army under the Land 400 Phase 2 programme are already being used for training. The 211 new BOXERs will replace Army’s Australian Light Armoured Vehicles (ALAV), delivering the service a new, cutting-edge capability.

Minister for Defence Linda Reynolds said the commencement of training brings Army a step closer to having world-class combat reconnaissance capability. “These vehicles will provide our soldiers with increased protection, lethality, connectivity and mobility for the next 30 years […] Defence has continued recruiting and training personnel under COVID-safe conditions to meet our force generation requirements to continue defending the nation and its interests,” she said.

BOXER training is being run in a COVID-safe manner. Defence and Rheinmetall Defence Australia have worked closely together to implement the necessary changes to ensure the training could be conducted safely. To date, Defence has accepted delivery of five BOXER vehicles, with an additional vehicle expected in mid-October.
