BAE Systems will respond to the Commonwealth of Australia’s LAND 400 Phase 3 Mounted Close Combat Capability Request for Tender with its combat-proven CV90, Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV).
The project team will be led by BAE Systems’ Sweden-based combat vehicles business and supported by BAE Systems Australia.
“The CV90 has a combat-proven track record, established customer base, and future growth potential that will more than satisfy the Commonwealth’s requirements for years to come,” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, vice president and general manager for BAE Systems Hägglunds, the designer and manufacturer of the vehicle. “We look forward to demonstrating the vehicle’s unparalleled capabilities and our breadth of operational experience as the Australian Commonwealth considers the LAND 400 Phase 3 competition.”
A total of 1280 CV90s are in service with seven nations, including four NATO members. Most recently, BAE Systems successfully completed the latest delivery of 144 CV90s to the Norwegian Army on time in 2018.
CV90s are already operational with militaries in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
The CV90 is available in 15 variants.
