      "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.

          This'll be an excellent bit of kit to have.



          It won't be attached to a Mowag here though, it'll be a DROPS package. Shame.

          For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

                Here's another, longer clip of it being deployed from DROPS.

                    Even with a combined buy how many units would it be realistic to expect to be able to buy given the costs of the Boxer?

                      The bigger the order the better the price.
                      But if we got 30 years out of the M3, the DoD will have no intention of replacing them until 2031 at the earliest.
                      Forgetting completely that both risk and levels of protection have changed dramatically since these were chosen at the end of the last century.

                        Cheaper to buy the non-U.K. version I think but then again they may give a good price

                        But the MOWAGs are currently being upgraded so

                          "Are they trying to shoot down the other drone? "

                          "No, they're trying to fly the tank"

                            There was an informative article about the upgrade in signal magazine that raco produces a few months age that’s on their website
