The Slovenian government, represented by the European procurement organization OCCAR, and ARTEC, a consortium of Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and Rheinmetall, signed a €281.5 million contract for the delivery of 45 BOXER wheeled vehicles in four different variants.
The volume of the order amounts to €281.5 million. Delivery of the BOXER protected 8x8 wheeled vehicles are 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.
