The initial phase of delivery of Elbit Systems UK’s systems will support early arrivals of the British Army’s new Mechanised Infantry Vehicle - Boxer.

The programme will include high fidelity driver trainers and cabins for turret and armament variants backed up by a full digital, training management system.

Elbit Systems UK’s open architecture and common digital systems support the delivery of an agile, interchangeable platform capability. The simulators will be networked to allow soldiers to train simultaneously in different formations, vehicles and locations. It can also be adapted to meet the training needs of all future armoured vehicles for the Army.

The contract will directly create and sustain jobs across a number of sites in the UK, within existing Elbit Systems UK facilities, a UK supply chain and on Army locations. This adds to recent investments made in staff and facilities to support the continued delivery of a number of high-tech programmes for the Armed Forces. This also demonstrates our ongoing support to the Land Industrial Strategy which focuses on ensuring the Army receives the capabilities it requires and also drives opportunity for UK industry and the economy.

Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK said: “Elbit Systems UK is delighted to have been selected to provide the British Army with such an important project. The training of armoured vehicle crews is paramount to their operational effectiveness and safety, and we take great pride in the trust the UK MoD have placed in us to deliver this contract.
