Ajax Family of Fighting Vehicles...AJAX, ARES, APOLLO, ATHENA, ATLAS and ARGUS

Many UK defense thinkers are pointing to the Boxer as the base vehicle for their future combat power.  I wonder if that might be short term thinking?  The Ajax has a family of vehicles already developed and ready to go.

It's mobility is unquestioned, its already being developed with Brit modifications/requirements and a large portion of it will be built in the UK.

Strike Brigades with Boxer or Heavy Strike Brigades with Ajax?  

Both can be tailored to the desired mission and the difference in weight is not all that great...The question might come down to self deployment.  Does the ability to self deploy within theater trump tactical mobility when the bullets start flying?
