MultiPlus 12/1600/70 wires included?

Hi guys,
I'm wondering if all the wires needed are included with this inverter/charger? I'm speaking about 220V AC in/out (Schuko) and battery +/- cables (50mm2).

My plan is to use this inverter/charger along with 200 A*h LiFePO4 battery as a long-running UPS for gas boiler (95W).
Is this setup ready to go out of the box?

The 12-1600-60 Multiplus in the metal case has 1.5m of 35mm cable for the DC connection. And a pair GST18 plug/sockets for mains wiring.

The newer plastic shelled Multiplus 12-1600-70 is only supplied with the GST18 plug/socket.

Wow I didn't expect to get an answer so fast, especially in the late night :)
I'm talking about this one:

It seems like it's RAL 5012 aluminium case, so it has "battery cables of 1.5m" in Enclosure section of it's specs:

But I never found it on any photos/video/manuals (just the same as GST18). So maybe the cable is included in this unit?

However, considering this unit's manual, the recommended cross section for 12/1600/70 is 50mm2:

So the 35mm2 cable included(?) might be replaced anyway for peak amps and 1.5m is 3 times as much as I need, so probably a separately ordered 50mm2 0.5m would be the best option here.

Anyway, the GST18 included are very good news, it helped me a lot, thank you!

The Amazon link is for the newer Plastic shelled multi. Have a look at the photos, you can see the GST18 plug/socket.

The inverter comes with no ac or dc cabling. Follow local regulations regarding cabling sizing.

I chopped up an old extension lead to connect to the GST18 plug/socket.
