    Any combat comparison between Boxers and Rosomaks? Has any Boxer seen combat? I'm very curious if it can serve as well as our AMV Rosomak.

    my personal observation is that the percentage of ex-serviceman or at least those who have done their mandatory service is significantly higher in the defense industry.

    Nope, since it is the first deployment for the Boxer, none of the vehicles has seen real combat so far.

    yes maybe
    But I doubt that two weeks of sleep in a “ dackelgarage “ during Biwak and 10 months of drinking games 10 years ago are an equivalent to a 4 day Combat Patrol ...


    which is not true for all Of course

    • the preliminary joint development treaty was signed by the right-wing Kohl government (April 1998)
    • the development contract with procurement option for 600 vehicles was signed by the third-way/Green Schröder government (1999) - the one that got us into our current deployments
    • the actual procurement contract for 272 vehicles was signed by Merkel's centrist grand coalition government (2006)

    You´re right Bleifuss, I haven´t seen them at first! Maybe they´re being used as improvised clearance indicators?
    Djiti, I´ve read that the Bundeswehr bought new driver helmets but I really don´t know what type of model they are. But from what I remember they offer ballistical protection but headphones can be used at the same time, too. Maybe someone else might know more.

    Let's hope so. But more than likely, it will only encourage them to build larger IEDs like they did to kill the Marder several weeks ago.
