The UK intends to procure additional Boxer armored vehicles following its order of 523 of them. The Janes website reported that in a written statement last week, UK Minister for Defence Procurement Jeremy Quin confirmed that the Ministry of Defence is "looking to enhance and uplift the size of the total UK Boxer order and this may include new variants."

Janes said that the numbers are expected to be firmed up by the British Army's management board, which is scheduled to meet during the last week of this month.

Sources at the Ministry of Defence said that the Army is still discussing the variants and requirements.
