Photographs of what appeared to be a Boxer wheeled armoured vehicle at a production facility in Algeria have added credence to claims that the type is being assembled in the North African country.

The photographs released via Twitter on 7 October showed a Boxer on a trailer at a location that appeared to be the test area at the Rheinmetall-Algerie facility near Aïn Smara where the German company’s Fuchs 2 armoured personnel carrier is assembled for the Algerian military. A Fuchs 2 could be seen in the background of one of the photographs.

The Boxer had a Lance turret and was painted in the same tan colour used on the Fuchs 2s assembled at the facility and other types of Algerian military vehicles.
