The Boxer MIV is a mobile and wheeled armoured combat vehicle, designed to undertake multi-terrain deployments amid a range of tasks such as infantry transportation and moving mobile medical facilities.

The periscopes and windows will be integrated into the Boxer’s chassis, which WFEL will supply to the UK’s Minister of Defence.

According to WFEL, the multimillion-pound contract between the two companies is expected to last for 10 years, with the company selected for proven, durable and quality products that minimise technical and commercial risk for the Boxer MIV program.

“We are delighted to join forces with GuS Periscopes in Wales as part of our UK-wide supply chain rollout for the MoD's Boxer Programme and look forward to a successful partnership supporting our joint UK MOD customer,” Ian Anderton, managing director of WFEL said.

GuS Periscope’s managing director Anthony Caruana explained that the recent agreement enabled the company to fulfil its objective of protecting British service personnel.

We are excited and proud to be supporting WFEL and to be fulfilling our purpose of 'protecting those who protect us',” Caruana said.

In order to meet the unique demands of the Boxer vehicle and their partnership with WFEL, GuS Periscope’s site has undergone a multimillion-pound investment.
