The volume of the order amounts to EUR 281.5 million. Delivery of the BOXER vehicles is scheduled to begin in 2024 and be completed in 2026.

Now that EU and NATO member Slovenia has joined the BOXER program, it has six user states.

So far, approximately 1,500 vehicles in twenty different versions are under contract in the four NATO member states Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania and the United Kingdom. NATO partner state Australia has opted for the BOXER as well.

ARTEC GmbH was founded in 1999 and is a joint venture between Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG, Rheinmetall Landsysteme GmbH and Rheinmetall Defence Nederland B.V. The company coordinates series production and serves as the point of contact for all export issues relating to the BOXER.

Next Generation of UF PRO’s Top-Performing, High-Comfort Combat Shirt and Pants Available for Purchase Soon

Thursday, May 19th, 2022

TRZIN, SLOVENIA (19 May 2022)—Tactical garment innovator UF PRO today announced they will soon start selling Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt and Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants for military and law-enforcement personnel.

The much-anticipated combat shirt and combat pants embody next-generation advances in tactical garment performance and comfort. UF PRO said its Striker XT Gen.3 garments were developed in response to the increasingly demanding requirements of today’s armed forces and police units.

“As the name indicates, the Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants and Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt are third-generation products with a proud heritage,” a UF PRO executive explained. “They each build on the strengths of our successful Striker XT Gen.2 line, which has become synonymous with rugged performance and remarkable comfort.

“What we have achieved with the Gen.3 line is a continuation of the excellence at the heart of all our work here at UF PRO.”

Per UF PRO, key features of the Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt include:

Critical-area mesh ventilation for extreme breathability

Fast-drying torso material for greater comfort

Breathable, air-permeable padding around the hips

air/pac® shoulder inserts for efficient weight distribution of heavy backpacks and plate carriers

Extra-long front zipper

Enhanced softness inside the collar

Slide-in pockets to accommodate protective UF PRO Elbow Pads

Large upper-arm pockets

Velcro® fastener-secured patches and pen pocket

Long zipper with soft padding

“Torso material clings to the wearer’s body for a perfect fit, and rapidly absorbs and dries sweat,” the company said. “3D mesh in the armpits and in the inside of the elbow joints helps wearers cool down to maintain optimal core body temperature. Breathable, air-permeable padding in the area of the pelvic crest prevents hip discomfort when carrying heavy loads, and a reinforced lower neck prevents the shirt from sliding around beneath those loads.”

UF PRO added that its signature air/pac® inserts prevent the occurrence of thermal bridging and help evenly distribute the weight of fully loaded plate carriers and heavy backpacks.

The Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt will be offered in a selection of colours. They are MultiCam®, Brown Grey, Black, Steel Grey, and Navy Blue.

Meanwhile, key features of the Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants were described by UF PRO as follows:

Waist/Flex System for ensuring continuously optimal fit as the wearer’s body changes shape throughout the day

Interchangeable belt buckle

Extra Velcro® fasteners inside the belt loops

Dual points of access to a ventilated large side-pocket

Double knife-pocket with detachable retention strap

Five-level vertical adjustment system at the knees

Opening along the bottom of the knees for easy insertion of a protective UF PRO Solid Pad

Adjustable lower-leg width

Expanded use of schoeller®-dynamic stretch material for greater freedom of movement

WINDSTOPPER® liner compatibility

Boot hooks

Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants will come in these colours: Flecktarn, SloCam, Brown Grey, Black, Steel Grey, and Navy Blue.

“The Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Pants and Striker XT Gen.3 Combat Shirt product development team pushed things to the limit in order to endow these garments with highest-level performance capabilities,” UF PRO said. “We can very confidently say that our team succeeded in that regard.”

Tactical Distributors Spring Summer Look Book

Check out TD’s Spring Summer Look Book created in collaboration with Q and LBT.



Wednesday, May 18th, 2022

While SIG’s booth is dominated by their machine gun and rifle options on the heels of their US Army Next Generation Squad Weapons program win, they’ve got a few other gems off in the corners like this P320 concept which shows the modularity of the platform and the art of the possible for users of Modular Handgun System.

It’s configured as an XCarry model and outfitted with a flat trigger, flared magwell, FOXTROT2 weapon light, MODX-9 suppressor (Mk27), and ROMEO2 reflex sight.

SOFIC 22 – Crye Precision

Wednesday, May 18th, 2022

If it wasn’t enough that Crye Precision launched an entire alpine clothing line at SHOT Show they are following it up with a new member of the JPC line. Meet the R-Series JPC.

Made up of 16 components, the R-Series takes modularity to a new level for the JPC. They’ve strengthened the vest to to improve load carriage and changed how you size the vest by developing a single front panel and leaving sizing selection solely to the rear panel.

This new front panel standardizes the amount of load carriage real estate across your force, regardless of individual stature. This means that smaller troops will be able to carry the same gear as those with wider chests. That’s because designer Matt Johnson developed a plate pocket that will accept not only different sized plates, but also different shapes.

Thanks to the scalability of the system, you can also configure it for simple load carriage missions where no armor is desired, or for front plate only with a chest rig like the Rhodesian rigs issued early in the war.

If you don’t need both front and back panels, there’s both a dedicated assault harness, or conversely you can set up a pack.

In addition to cummerbund options, R-Series also includes radio, magazine, and accessory pockets which can be mounted beside or below the front and back panels giving numerous options. These pockets also make the load more streamlined.

In addition to beefing up the design to accommodate heavier loads which are generally more suited to AVS, Crye also integrated cable management channels throughout the design to help with keeping everything streamlined.

I am very impressed with the versatilty of this new system and it offers a more coat effective alternative for those organizations who are considering AVS.
