    The multirole armored vehicle (GTK) by the name of Boxer is a heavy-load all-terrain and highly mobile armored transport vehicle which is to replace the M113 APC and Fuchs ATV in the forces. It is air-transportable in the new Airbus A400M transport aircraft, offering maximum passenger protection as currently possible against firing as well as IEDs and mines which are to be expected during operations abroad.
