“The armoured maneuvering capability program is one of the most important capability development projects of the last decade in Estonia, which will increase the combat capability of Estonian Defence Forces remarkably,” said Margus Padjus, project manager of the Procurement Department at ECDI.” The CV9035 Infantry Fighting Vehicles that the Estonian Ministry of Defence bought from the Netherlands was the first step in this project. To ensure utilization of the vehicles would be as efficient as possible, ECDI entered into the long-lasting life-cycle support contract with BAE Systems Hägglunds. I am convinced that our CV90s will be professionally and reliably supported by BAE Systems Hägglunds.”

Estonia is one of seven nations, including four NATO allies, operating more than 1,200 CV90s. The CV90 is a leading, adaptable, and combat proven vehicle.

“We welcome Estonia to the family of nations who rely on the CV90 for critical ground combat capability,” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, general manager of BAE Systems Hägglunds. “We are fully committed to supporting Estonia and ensuring this new capability and cost-efficient solution will be effectively integrated in a manner consistent with other NATO users.”

The CV9035 development started in 2001 and the vehicle was ready for production in the middle of 2004. In December 2004, Netherland has ordered a total of 184 CV9035 with first delivery in 2007. The vehicle is also in service with the Danish army.

The CV9035 is an IFV (Infantry Fighting Vehicle) from the family of CV90 manufactured by the Company BAE Systems. The vehicle is fitted with a two-man turret armed with a Bushmaster III 35mm 50-caliber automatic cannon
