Combat Vehicle 90
« on: January 25, 2018, 02:15:23 PM »
From: https://www.army-technology.com/projects/cv90/

Combat Vehicle 90 (CV90) represents a family of armoured combat vehicles developed by BAE Systems Land Systems Hägglunds (formerly Alvis Hägglunds) of Örnsköldsvik and Saab Bofors Dynamics of Karlskoga, Sweden. It is also called Stridsfordon 90 (Strf 90). Originally, the chassis of CV90 was built by Land Systems Hägglunds, while Saab Bofors supplied the turret. Currently, BAE Systems Hägglunds produces the entire vehicle.

The development of the CV90 began in 1984 in response to the requirements outlined by the Swedish Army for a family of armoured combat vehicles with high tactical and strategic mobility, air defence and anti-tank capability, high survivability and protection. Production began in 1993 and more than 1,200 vehicles have been ordered. The 1,000th vehicle was delivered in January 2009. The CV90 is in service with the armies of Sweden (509), Norway (103), Switzerland (186), Finland (102), the Netherlands (192) and Denmark (45).

BAE Systems takes aim at Czech Army requirement with CV90
Shaun Connors, London - Jane's International Defence Review
13 June 2017

http://www.janes.com/article/71375/bae-systems-takes-aim-at-czech-army-requirement-with-cv90
   
BAE Systems Hägglunds displayed two examples of the CV90 (Combat Vehicle 90) infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) - with one of these being an unmanned turret-equipped model shown for the first time in public - at IDET 2017 in Brno, Czech Republic.

The company has integrated Kongsberg's MCT-30, with this being the first unmanned turret to be fitted by BAE Systems Hägglunds to a CV90 hull. To accommodate the internal crew and stowage arrangements dictated by an unmanned turret option, the base CV90 all-welded steel hull is raised slightly, with periscopes fitted to provide enhanced situational awareness for the gunner and commander. It is understood that other unmanned turrets can be integrated if required.

Although detailed technical requirements are yet to be released, BAE Systems Hägglunds clearly is taking aim at the Czech Army's BMP-2 IFV replacement programme. The company in May 2016 announced a teaming agreement with VOP CZ of the Czech Republic to offer CV90s to meet the service's requirement in an expected 2020-25 timeframe.

< Edited >

Both turret types were armed with an Orbital ATK Armament Systems 30 mm Mk 44 cannon and 7.62 mm co-axial machine gun. This main gun option has been selected by about 30% of all CV90 users to date, and the calibre is understood to be another expressed preference of the Czech Army. The version shown with the manned turret fitted is similar to the Norwegian Army's current specification.

CV90 105s

CV90105 TML Turret


From fighting-vehicles.com
Quote
The CV90105 TML Turret (aka CV90105-T) is a former medium tank (as described by the manufacturer) demonstrator utilizing “off-the shelf” components, which were the French Giat (now Nexter) TML Turret and the Swedish Hägglunds Mk0 Strf 9040 (Combat Vehicle 90 aka CV90) hull.

The first and only demonstrator was completed in 1994. It served a number of purposes, firstly to show how adaptable the CV90 was for potential export clients as well as offering them a family of variants. Secondly Giat could demonstrate how its turret could be fitted to yet another vehicle as well as the hope that any future CV90 export clients would buy their turret.

Eurosatory: CMI Defence and BAE Systems Hägglunds present the CV90105 | CMI Defence - 16 June 2014

Quote
Global demand for medium tanks continues to strengthen.  At Eurosatory 2014, CMI Defence and BAE Systems Hägglunds present a new medium tank concept.  The system integrates the Cockerill XC-8 turret and the CV90 tracked chassis.  With a system weight of some 25 tonnes, the concept offers advanced 105mm or 120mm firepower with high operational flexibility and tactical mobility.
The Cockerill XC-8 is a low-weight concept-turret that recognises divergent market requirements; specifically for the broad operational flexibility demanded by the medium-tank requirement, and for the narrower, more specialised anti-armour requirement.  Thus one of two low-recoil force guns may be fitted in the XC-8.

The Cockerill 105mm high pressure gun provides crew commanders with a wide choice of ammunition to suit the tactical situation; it fires all NATO-standard 105mm types and the Cockerill Falarick 105 Gun Launched Anti Tank Guided Missile (GLATGM).  Elevating to +42° this weapon delivers exceptional engagement capability in complex terrain, an indirect-fire HE capability to beyond 10km range, and the GLATGM permits heavy armour to be engaged at extended ranges.

BAE Systems introduces CV90 MkIV | Janes - 26 January 2018
Quote
According to BAE Systems, the latest CV90 MkIV has a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 37 tonnes – up from the baseline vehicle’s 35 tonnes – which enables two tonnes of additional payload to be carried.

Mobility is enhanced with a powerpack comprising a new 1,000-hp Scania engine and an upgraded X300 transmission, which is supported by an active damping system that provides improved stability.

The vehicle can be equipped with the new CV90MkIV D-series of modular turrets that can accommodate a wide range of weapons, including main guns of up to 120 mm in calibre as well as anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs).

BAE Systems CV90 MkIV new evolution of IFV armoured for modern battlefield | Army Recognition - 13 February 2018
Quote
They all benefit from the continuous development of one of the world’s most modern, versatile, reliable, and combat-proven vehicles – the CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV). The CV90s combination of firepower, mobility and protection is the cornerstone of the platform. An IFV that has evolved over more than two decades, the highly-adaptable CV90 builds on its legacy as a benchmark when it comes to best-in-class IFVs.

The essence of the CV90 has always been to keep advancing to the next phase. From the original requirements set by the Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) in the mid-90s to the most recent version of the CV90 delivered to the Norwegian Army, the time has come to introduce a new generation to the family – the fifth generation, CV90 MkIV.

The CV90 MkIV represents the next step in the evolution of the CV90 concept. Building on a proud legacy of best-in-class mobility and survivability spanning more than two decades, the CV90 MkIV brings unrivalled technological capabilities and flexibility to today’s complex battlefield.

It seems to fit quite right for the Army's Medium Battle Tank requirements.  IMHO, the weight of the units could be given much more leeway though. :)

The new CV90 MkIV showed at Eurosatory 2018 is fitted with a two-man turret armed an automatic cannon from 35 to 500mm, one 7.62mm coaxial machine, one 40mm automatic grenade launcher and two anti-tank guided missile launchers mounted on the right side of the turret. The rear part of the CV90 MkIV can accomodate 8 infantrymen who can leave an enter the vehicle through a large hydraulically operated ramp located at the rear of the hull.

The CV90s have been deployed by national forces, the UN and NATO in missions across the globe, from Afghanistan to Liberia. There are more than 1,280 CV90 vehicles in 15 variants operated by seven nations, including four NATO countries. With an investment of more than 4.5 million engineering hours to date, BAE Systems remains committed to further advancing future generations of the CV90.

CV90 fires Spike-LR missile in testing
8th January 2020 - 11:30 GMT

The testing, carried out in northern Sweden, saw a Rafael Advanced Defense Systems’ Spike-LR (long range) missile mounted on a BAE Systems Hägglunds’ CV90 and fired at a target more than 2,000 metres away.

The exercise marks the first time an integrated version of the anti-tank guided missile has been launched from the CV90, and demonstrates the vehicle’s enhanced operational capabilities on the battlefield by enabling indirect fire at long distances or at air targets. It also demonstrates the platform’s versatility to perform a wide range of missions, and shows the CV90 can adapt to new technologies for meeting current and future requirements.
