Cwmbran-based GuS Periscopes will supply WFEL with Periscope and Window Systems for the Boxer Mechanised Infantry Vehicles. The multi-million contract with WFEL will run for 10 years.
The components will be incorporated into both the Boxer Drive Module chassis and also the Mission Modules that WFEL will supply to the UK MoD. Production of the vehicles is now underway at WFEL’s new facility in Stockport.
“We are delighted to join forces with GuS Periscopes in Wales as part of our UK-wide supply chain roll-out for the MoD’s Boxer Programme and look forward to a successful partnership supporting our joint UK MOD customer,” said Ian Anderton, WFEL Managing Director.
“Our proven Periscopes and Windows for the UK Boxer vehicles will be manufactured to unrivalled levels of quality and durability to fulfil the needs of the British Army MIV program, to ensure service personnel survive the rigours and hazards of combat and fulfil their critical missions,” said Anthony Caruana, Managing Director of GuS Periscopes.
The Boxer Mechanised Infantry Vehicles are highly mobile, wheeled armoured combat vehicles that combine long distance road deployment with all-terrain mobility, bringing new capabilities to the British Army. The common Boxer base platform, with its interchangeable Mission Modules, can cover a range of capabilities, from infantry personnel transportation around the battlefield to highly equipped mobile medical facilities.
