Boxer to be demonstrated with John Cockerill Defense's C3105 turret

via Janes
Belgium’s John Cockerill Defense is supplying its latest-generation C3105 turret armed with their 105 mm High Pressure (HP) rifled gun to Krauss-Maffei Wegmann for installation on the rear mission module of the Boxer 8×8 Multi-Role Armoured Vehicle (MRAV).

This combination is being developed using internal research-and-development funding and is expected to undertake firing trials later in 2020.

The Boxer MRAV is deployed by Australia, Germany, Lithuania and the Netherlands, and is on order for the British Army.

The John Cockerill Defense C3105 is a member of the C3000 series of turrets that are in volume production for the export market with over 450 built to date and with production still underway.
Well Ogden and Drummond are gonna be annoyingly happy for the next couple of months while this thing is trialed.

I guess even in the middle of a pandemic dreams do come true.
