The mission changes - so does BOXER
The Cargo/C2 variant of the BOXER is a multipurpose vehicle, which is derived from the Cargo version.
It can be used for multiple staff tasks within the armoured and infantry units. The Cargo/C2 has a prime role at a tactical level of command and control and it provides a protected cargo carrying capacity. For this reason the vehicle has a dedicated and flexible interior. In a first batch the Dutch Army ordered 19 BOXER vehicles in the Cargo/C2 variant.
The BOXER Cargo/C2 interior has the flexibility to be reconfigured to suit three different functions:
- Command function – C2 function with seating for 3 extra passengers
- Cargo transport function – the rear part of the mission module floor can be used for one and half tonnes of cargo
- Casualty transport – additional possibilty to transport a NATO stretcher and casualty
It has a standard crew of three: driver, commander and weapon operator.
Depending on the configuration the vehicle can also accommodate up to 4 passengers, a stretcher and casualty or one and half tonnes of cargo.
