Combat Vehicle 90 represents a family of armoured combat vehicles developed by BAE Systems Land Systems Hagglunds (formerly Alvis Hägglunds) of Örnsköldsvik and Saab Bofors Dynamics of Karlskoga, Sweden. Land Systems Hägglunds builds the chassis and Saab Bofors supplies the turret.
The development of the CV90 began in 1984 in response to the requirements outlined by the Swedish Army for a family of armoured combat vehicles with high tactical and strategic mobility, air defence and anti-tank capability, high survivability and protection. Production began in 1993 and over 1,170 vehicles have been ordered. The 1,000th vehicle was delivered in January 2009. The CV90 is in service with the armies of Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Finland, the Netherlands and Denmark.
CV90 vehicles have been deployed in Afghanistan by the Norwegian Army since November 2007 as part of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).
A number of Swedish vehicles are also scheduled to go to Afghanistan in mid-2009.
The all-welded steel hull can be upgraded with add-on armour, which protects against 30mm APFSDS (armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot) rounds. The vehicle has low radar, acoustic and infrared signature. A fire detection and extinguishing system is fitted and full nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) protection is provided.
The CV90 infantry fighting vehicle is compatible with a range of armaments, sights and fire control systems to suit the mission requirement. All versions carry a crew of three: commander, driver and gunner, together with up to eight soldiers.
Versions of the CV90 IFV include the CV9040 with 40mm gun and the export variant, the CV9030 with 30mm gun. The CV9040 has been in service with the Swedish army since 1993 with nearly 500 systems delivered and is armed with a 40mm Bofors L/70 cannon. Final deliveries were completed in September 2002.
The sighting systems of a number of Swedish CV9040 vehicles are being upgraded with an LIRC thermal imaging system from FLIR Systems of Portland, Oregon. LIRC is based on QWIP (quantum well infrared photodetector) technology.
