Description: The CV90 is a family of modular ground combat vehicles designed to carry out the most part of modern mechanized units missions. The CV90 vehicles are extremely agile, all-terrain capable, with minimized radar and IR signatures to achieve high survivability. They also feature reduced maintenance costs and high growth potential. The CV90's turret is electrically operated and houses a UTAAS sight providing day/night and all-weather detection and fire control capabilities.

The CV90 vehicles are the result of a joint venture between Bofors Defence and Hagglunds. The first CV90 vehicles where delivered to the Swedish Army in 1993. In addition, Norway, Switzerland and Finland have ordered CV90 armored vehicles. Netherlands joined CV90 customers club in December 2004. The vehicles weighing 20 to 30 tons are powered by a single Scania DI16 diesel engine providing 600-670 hp.

The CV90 Armadillo is an armored personnel carrier variant lacking the turret of previous models and combining high levels of protection with excellent mobility. Its modular design includes a rear roof section which can be unbolted to allow simple changeover between different mission packages. The vehicle's crew consists of commander, driver and gunner plus eight dismounted troops. CV90 Armadillo has horizontal ballistic protection well above the NATO STANAG 4569 Level 5 standard and can withstand a mine blast of significantly above 10kg. It also features the Saab LEDS-150 hard kill device and an external fire suppression system. BAE Systems plans for the development of several new CV90 variants based upon Armadillo: command and control, medevac, mortar carrier, engineer vehicle, bridge layer and additional enhanced protection vehicle. The CV90 Armadillo was displayed for the first time at the Eurosatory exhibition in June 2010.
