I think the 2020's might see a bit of a resurgence of low-level AD among NATO/FVEY nations.

I'm thinking a lot more than a bit. As peer-peer conflict comes back into view, politically, nations who have focused on COIN and asymmetric warfare for the last 15 years are pivoting to find out that their old potential adversaries have not been standing still while they fought in the deserts.

There are a LOT of doctrinal roosters coming home to perch at the moment.

Western Navies are rediscovering that they need sophisticated anti-shipping strike, long range anti-missile defence and really sophisticate ASW capability that they have let lapse since the early 90s. Air Forces are rediscovering that they need to be able to win air superiority in an incredibly contested air and electronic space. Armies are noticing that sabres are being rattled, sabres that need more than wheeled vehicles to combat and that their tracked platforms are 40 years old and aging. And seriously sophisticated cyber warfare is a brand new thing compared to the last time the West's militaries looked beyond long term, low intensity sustained COIN ops.

There is a LOT of money needed to revamp the world's militaries to face near peer adversaries, yet there is nowhere near enough money to do all the needed things in the short term. 30 years of low intensity focus is going to take quite a while to overcome.

Fixed.

The missile appears to be a variant of the MBDA CAMM (Common Anti-Air Modular Missile) series

@Greg/GTX

no image showing up in your post.  I can view the image only by opening your post and going directly to the linked image. 

So what weapons system is that on the back of the Boxer ?

I think that is the Brimstone extended range concept?

That transparent nose cone does look very like the Dual Mode Brimstone/Brimstone 2 ... but the missile body looks much more like FLAADS/Sky Sabre  :-\

Another view of the missile in the above image:



Certainly looks to be a variant of CAMM (LAND APPLICATION):



Doing some further research, it appears that it is part of MBDA’s Future Land Indirect Fires concept and is essentially a combination of the CAMM missile with a Brimstone shaker.
