Initially created for the Swedish army, the orginal CV90 platform has been embraced by forces all over Europe including Norway, Finland, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Denmark. The CV90 has successfully performed in live global operations including UN and NATO collaborations. Under the command of the Norwegian, Swedish and Danish armies, it has also been deployed as part of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan.

The CV90 has the most advanced protection kits available in the world, providing flexible solutions for any mission requirements. The platform utilises a modular approach to armour. Its base structure is designed to carry any add-on armourwithout adding parasitic weight to the overall vehicle. It provides crew protection from the latest heavy weaponry including IEDs and anti-tank mines. It also protects occupants from Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) threats with a specialised filter system.

To meet modern day battlefield threats, the vehicle can be fitted with further protection including different types of armour to protect against diverse threats, such as shaped charge warheads and RPG-7s, as wel well as a Defensive Aid Suite (DAS) that classifies targets, gives threat warnings via the Vehicle Information System (VIS) and supports the driver with speed corrections to reduce the risk of being hit, and adaptive camouflage, which offers an active multi-spectral defence system, rendering the vehicle appearance to match its environment The technology also takes on the textures of other objects, minimising the vehicle’s radar and IR signature and further increasing crew survivability.

Powered by a high torque V8 diesel engine, the CV90 can reach speeds of 70 km/h. The vehicle’s road range is also constantly improving, with new variants capable of travelling up to 900 km.

As a first class combat vehicle, the CV90 is compatible with a range of armaments to suit any missionrequirements. The vehicle is normally fitted with a two-man turret which is equipped with the well proven 25-35 mm Bushmaster cannon.

The variant showcased at IDET, the CV9030, features a 30 mm Bushmaster II cannon and an add-on armour kit. The Mk44 Bushmaster II is a 30 mm chain gun manufactured by Alliant Techsystems, now Orbital ATK. It is a derivative of the 25 mm M242 Bushmaster and has an effective firing range of 3,000 metres.
