In other words, the entire Boxer catalogue.

I will try to dig up the full list of those variants Australia is getting.

Australia is getting these variants of the Boxer.  The Ambulance variant is only an option at this stage.

Hmm, i wonder if the Joint Fires is a Coordination Centre or a FOO vehicle.

No AD version..what does the RAA field for mobile Air Defence?

The Australian Regular Army (ARA) currently uses RBS70:



Under LAND 19 Phase 7B they will be getting an enhanced version of the Raytheon/KONGSBERG National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS).  This will include an advanced electronically-scanned array (AESA) and electro-optical sensors, including the mobile CEA Tactical (CEATAC) AESA fire-control radar on the rear of a modified Thales Hawkei 2-door protected mobility vehicle (PMV) or on a towed trailer, a larger CEA Operational (CEAOPS) AESA search radar mounted on a Rheinmetall HX77 8×8 heavy truck, and a Raytheon MTS-A electro-optical infrared (EO/IR) sensor with a 5m telescopic mast and housing, also mounted on a Hawkei plus an upgraded vehicle-borne high-mobility launcher (HML) based upon the Hawkei which will include the new Mk 2 canister launcher with the ability to fire both AMRAAM or AMRAAM-ER and the infrared Raytheon AIM-9X Block 2 missile (useful noting that the RAAF already uses AMRAAM and AIM-9X), using a common ground rail on the HML.

Mk 2 canister launcher launching AMRAAM:



Hawkei based CEATAC:



Trailer based CEATAC:



Rheinmetall truck mounted CEAOPS:

Given it will be fitted with Rheinmetall’s  Vingtaqs II reconnaissance and surveillance system with electro-optical daytime/night time-capable visual sensor and a laser rangefinder I think you will find it is more of a FOO vehicle.

To me it would make sense to design Boxer compatible modules for LAND 19 Phase 7B because the Boxer modules are intended to either be mounted on a Boxer vehicle, or on an interface frame mounted on the ground or even a flat bed truck.

Perhaps....though I would prefer someone releasing a Thales Hawkei kit.

Missed this! :o

I'd be up for buying a couple or three, if someone released a decent styrene version! 8)
