Extracting Casualties in The Golden Hour
Fast moving Armoured Warfare requires casualty evacuation which can keep up with the force and provides the crew and casualties with the same levels of protection as the rest of the vehicles. The big challenge on the battlefield is to get a casualty into care and start treatment within the hour, the same Golden Hour that civil Accident and Emergency services aim to achieve.
The Royal Netherlands Army is no different. It required an armoured ambulance to recover wounded soldiers from the battlefield and treat them within the vehicle whilst on transit to the hospital location. The solution had to be based on their fleet of armoured vehicles, the Boxer.
