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 CV9030 MkII is an upgraded model of the well-proven CV9030 to satisfy the Swiss and Finnish requirements. The MkII armored vehicle can be armed with a 30mm Bushmaster II or a 30mm Mk44 fully stabilized automatic cannons in addition of the 7.62mm machine gun. It also features an improved digitized vehicle control system.

In early November 2004, Switzerland ordered CV90 combat vehicle training simulators in addition of 186 CV90s order placed in 2000. Each simulator comprises a chassis and a turret simulator aimed at providing training for the crew and technical staff.
