“CV90 has been such a success globally due to its flexibility and upgrade potential for the past 17 years,” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, marketing and sales director for BAE Systems. “Initial CV90 designs were focused towards providing high mobility and high firepower, but more recent designs have focused on high survivability in order to adapt to more recent threats. Our track record of successful offset programs, connected to the CV90, is a testament to our understanding of our customers and the needs of their countries industrial bases.”
There have been a number of design upgrades over the years to improve flexibility of the vehicle and increase survivability and other capabilities, the most recent version being the MkIII. The large fleet of vehicles around the globe gives existing and new customers considerable advantages such as a broader base for cost-sharing of future upgrades and spare parts and international interoperability. Production of current CV90 contracts end in 2011 with future versions of the vehicle currently in development. (news @Defro)
