October 11, 2023 – BAE Systems Hägglunds has signed a pre-production contract with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV), worth approximately $4 million.
The vehicles – CV90 MkIIIC – will replace the 50 CV90s that Sweden has supplied to Ukraine. This first-stage contract is to agree and finalise the configuration and programme scheduling with the intention of signing a production contract in early 2024.
“We are proud of our longstanding relationship with Sweden and this contract is an important step in continuing to provide the critical combat-proven CV90s the Swedish Army needs as it maintains the sovereignty and protection of our nation” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, Managing Director of BAE Systems Hägglunds.
“The CV90 family of vehicles is a world leader, evolving constantly to retain its leadership position, thanks to inputs from armed forces like Sweden’s, as they operate the vehicle.”
BAE Systems Hägglunds has sold more than 1,700 CV90s in 17 variants for use in 10 European countries, seven of which are NATO members.
