Nederlands ? I didn't know their army used it. Do they use it at war ?

German versions already exist in both 1:35 and 1:72.

The Dutch Boxer has been in the Koninklijke Landmacht for many years now.
After extensive trials it is now part of the standard equipment.
Due to the nature of the Dutch participation in the various missions worldwide it has not been used in combat circumstances yet.
However, they are in use in the Dutch participation in the NATO units in Lithuania.

Beware: there are differences between the German and Dutch vehicles.
Have a look at Facebook ‘13 Lichte Brigade’ for some Dutch Boxers.

I definitely want to built that version of the Boxer. It looks awesome with the turret and AUSCAM

It’ll be interesting to see how different the production truck is to the trial truck.

Recon role. I am curious to see whether there are Repair and Recov variants in the mix

Would imagine so, will replace ASLAV and all its variants so assume PC, this variant, RAEME, ambulance, command, surveillance?
Makes the next phase interesting, M113 replacement.
