Danish Army CV90 Fleet to Receive Maintenance From BAE

Denmark has awarded BAE Systems a $400-million contract to deliver repair and sustainment services for the army’s CV90 infantry fighting vehicles.

Under the agreement, the company will cover associated maintenance tasks to secure the fleet’s “upgraded level of operability” for future missions.

A total of 44 CV90s will receive the services and corresponding spare parts for 15 years, BAE explained.

“This important agreement will secure the functionality of the Danish Army’s fleet of CV90s, and will ensure that they remain operating at a high capability level and tempo for many years to come,” BAE Systems Hägglunds Managing Director Tommy Gustafsson-Rask said.

“We are proud to deliver these critical capabilities to the customer.”

The CV90

CV90 is a “combat-proven” platform that is offered in 17 variants depending on user requirements.

The international CV90 fleet has been driven over 8 million kilometers (5 million miles). European and NATO partners have deployed the platform in Afghanistan, Liberia, and Ukraine, BAE stated.

Each CV90 has a length of 6.8 meters (22 feet) and weighs up to 38 tons, depending on the variant. It is operated by a driver, gunner, and commander and can transport eight passengers.

The CV90 is powered by a diesel engine with up to 1,000 horsepower for a maximum speed of 70 kilometers (43 miles) per hour.

It is protected by multiple anti-ammunition systems, an auto-cannon, and mortar. Optional weapons include machine guns, grenade launchers, and anti-tank guided missiles.
