Kongsberg and KMW+NEXTER Defense Systems (KNDS) have conducted tests of the Protector RT60 remote turret mounted on the Boxer 8×8 armored vehicle.

The Boxer integrated with the RT60 Remote Turret was first displayed at the opening of the KNDS Boxer manufacturing facility at WFEL, Stockport in May 2021. Kongsberg said it successfully completed platform and turret testing recently.
