Danish Army Specific: In autumn 2007 BAE Systems Hägglunds in Sweden did deliver the first of 45 CV9035 armoured infantry fighting vehicles (AIFVs) as part of an overall DKK1.675 billion (GBP156.12 million) contract with the Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO).
The acquisition of the vehicle type represents an entirely new concept for Danish infantry operation
The vehicles are scheduled to be delivered to The Royal Danish Life Guard and The Guard Hussars Regiment. See also
: In the middle of the 80´s Hägglunds, together with Bofors, started the development of a new family of Combat Vehicles called Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90) for the Swedish Army. Five prototypes were delivered in 1988 and were tested during extensive trials for three years.
In March 1991, the Swedish Army placed the first series production order for the Swedish Combat Vehicle 90 Family. The first deliveries took place in 1994, and now over 500 CV90´s have been delivered to the Swedish Army.
Since then the international interest has been great. In Norway 1994 the Norwegian Army Materiel Command signed a contract for 104 units of CV9030 IFV. The contract was won after more than two years of extensive and highly competitive trials between five of the world’s leading defence industries.
The CV9030 IFV has also been ordered by Switzerland (186 units), Finland (102 units) and the Netherlands (184 units). With the Danish Army’s order of 45 units it gives a total of 1.170 vehicles.
Today CV90 is used by the Norwegian and Swedish Defence forces for International Operations.
The possibility of Through Life Support for maintenance and upgrades during the vehicles´ life cycle are under discussion with several countries.
