    Why did it take so long? It's been 31 years since the project began and most boxer variants are still just prototypes, am I missing something?

      No clue. Atleast the 155 howitzer version appears to be really good.

      Production only started in 2009 and really only got going in 2013. There was a lot of frickery before that with France pulling out, UK pulling out only to decide 20 years later to buy it, Germany not commiting enough money because they were also testing the Puma and Lynx.

      Because vehicle modularity is a meme. It sounds good on paper, but no army in the world is going to buy a bunch of extra modules that they don't plan on using, so all the extra weight, cost, and development time spent on it is wasted, while all the benefits can be met with purpose-built vehicles built on a common chassis.

        One machine hit the mine and drivetrain gone. Another machines module fricked up in the fight. Put first machine's module on second's drivetrain in an hour and you have one good machine right away while parts in repair.

    As an aussie I'm sad we are moronic enough to mix Boxers and Redbacks, should have just got the Boxer for everything to minimize training and logi load but our politicians are moronic so Hanwha just had to rename the K21 "Redback" to win the contract.

      wasn't the redback the preferred option for the army? I agree all-boxer would have simplified things

        I would be happy if we ordered a Redback APC and were all redback, it's just mixing them that makes no sense.

    Good luck explaining to politicians why they should approve buying modules that will sit unused in a warehouse most of the time instead of getting whole vehicles.

      ... Anon's right. That's a weird way to look at it but is exactly how a politician would see it.

      Last time i spoke with anyone from KMW regarding the Boxer, they said that the customers usually just buy chassis and module on a 1-to-1 basis, ie not a lot of spare shit laying around.

    Weird. We were just talking about the future of armored warfare in the Bradley thread.

        >10 year fricking plan
        Seriously though, peacetime engineering and engineering projects take way too much time. Shit is kind of fricking moronic unless they mean it includes all production runs of the vehicle they plan to make. What a fricking grift man.

        Because vehicle modularity is a meme. It sounds good on paper, but no army in the world is going to buy a bunch of extra modules that they don't plan on using, so all the extra weight, cost, and development time spent on it is wasted, while all the benefits can be met with purpose-built vehicles built on a common chassis.

        I'd say that most modules are probably meme-ish. But might be nice to have some spares of and use. But seeing the current state of the Dutch and German forces they have the same issue basically all of homosexual bureaucracy in the west has. c**tfaced spreadsheet managers seeing how they can save money by only keepping 10% of the fleet operable to drive down costs on their budgets so they can spend it on (probably) useless shit non-warfighting training.
        Same reason these procurement and development processes take so long, too many c**ts, too many gears which have to be greased and basically too much allowed corruption.

      Not at all surprising, given that Germany is in the progress of absorbing the Dutch military and has basically soft-annexed the country

        only the Dutch ground forces were integrated into the German army
        Germany integrated its naval infantry into the Dutch navy too
