Australian industry involvement in the Boxer 8x8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle build is ramping up, with Precision Metal Group contracted to build the seating frames for the vehicle.

Precision Metal Group has partnered with German firm Probatec for the work, and will achieve a German welding certification, paving the way for further export opportunities.

Minister for Defence, Linda Reynolds, said: ‘These military-grade seats are critical for the protection of soldiers in our Boxer 8x8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle crews. The vehicles are able to undertake a range of missions from regional stability and peacekeeping, through to high-threat operations.

‘Importantly, they will keep Australian soldiers safer while on deployment and on exercises around the world. This project highlights the government’s commitment to ensuring the Australian Defence Force is equipped to succeed in our challenging strategic environment.’
