BAE Systems signs contract with Sweden for new CV90 combat vehicles

BAE Systems has signed a contract with the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration, FMV, for new CV9035 MkIIIC combat vehicles, as well as associated integrated logistic support.

This new contract will provide new-build CV90s to help replenish the Swedish Army’s fleet.

These new CV9035 MkIIICs will replace CV9040 vehicles donated to Ukraine by the Swedish government.

In addition, the Swedish government is procuring more new-build CV90 vehicles to expand Ukraine capabilities.

The contract will provide the opportunity for other nations to join in the procurement of CV90MkIIICs.

The new CV9035 MkIIIC is built to the same standard as the newest CV90 mid-life upgrade program for the Netherlands.

The vehicles will be equipped with a new turret which provides a leap forward in design and functionality.

It also offers significant ergonomic improvements to benefit the vehicle’s crew.

The vehicle is built on years of combat-proven experience, continuous improvements, and data gathering from the CV90 User Club, which comprises the nations operating CV90 fleets.

BAE Systems’ CV90 infantry fighting vehicle provides world-leading combat capability in the 20-38 ton class.

It can integrate a wide range of weapon systems, providing all-target capability to land forces around the world.

With a total of 1,700 vehicles ordered in 17 different variants, the CV90 has covered more than eight million kilometers.

It has been selected by 10 European nations, eight of them NATO-members, and has seen combat in Afghanistan and Ukraine, as well as operations in Liberia.
