The German Army / Bundeswehr is testing the GTK-Boxer in a lot of versions and configurations. The German testing center WTD get the britisch Prototyp with a little turret for Optics. This version is closed.
No GTK-Boxer became a little turret. The Britisch Army did not order the GTK, they ordered the MOWAG , Piranha IV .

So I post pictures from the ex- UK Prototyp , now by the German testing crew .







The German Personal Carrier in the configuration so it is produced :
With the Weapon-Station with MG or GMW .

Not bad at all,but my belief is that every apc should have a turret and a mangun like the LAV apc.It would simply be a lot of firepower,and by that logic a squadron of apc's could have a light job against a tank.
