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 CV9035 MkIII is the next generation of the CV9030 infantry fighting vehicle. It will feature a Bushmaster III 35mm 50-caliber cannon as main armament to counter emerging threats with a computerized fire control solution, new programmable ammunition, a commander's independent sight achieving hunter-killer capability, higher protection against top-attack munitions and mines through a new armor package, third generation FLIR, and a defensive aids suite with laser warning receivers and smoke launchers.

The CV9035 MkIII program started in 2001 and completed its development, becoming available for production, in mid-2004. Alvis Hägglunds plans to integrate the individual improvements featured in CV9035 MkIII into previous generations of CV90 armored platform such as CV9030 and CV9040. Overall, CV9035 features enhanced firepower, survivability, mobility, ergonomics and advanced electronic architecture with implemented C4I systems.

In June 2004, Patria Hägglunds was awarded a €120 million contract for 45 additional CV9030 FIN infantry fighting vehicles with deliveries due in 2006 and 2007. It is likely that the 45 CV90s ordered by Finland will be supplied in the CV9035 Mk III standard. Following BAe Systems acquisition of Alvis the new company/business unit responsible for the CV90 project was named Land Systems Hagglunds.

On December 10, 2004, Land Systems Hagglunds received a €749 million contract for the production of 184 CV9035 infantry fighting vehicles. CV9035 was chosen by the government of Netherlands after extensive competitive evaluation and testing under the Dutch Infantry Fighting Vehicle program. The Netherlands Army will be the end customer for these vehicles and the Dutch defense will be strongly involved in the production phase of the program. Deliveries will start in 2007 and will last until 2010.

In mid-December 2005 the Danish Army ordered 45 CV9035 Mk III infantry fighting vehicles worth £123 million becoming the fourth customer for the CV90 version equipped with a Bushmaster III 35/50 canon. The contract also included Danish company Hydrema Export A/S as a partner to BAE Systems for the production of the vehicles.
