Sweden is modernizing the Stridsfordon CV90 BMP

Back in May 2016, BAE Systems signed an agreement to modernize the fleet of CV90 infantry fighting vehicles of the Swedish Armed Forces. As part of the BMP upgrade program aimed at extending their service life, the company will increase survivability, strengthen the turrets and improve other characteristics of the 256 Strf CV90 BMPs.


Recall that the CV90 is a family of tracked combat vehicles produced by the aforementioned British BAE Systems, which at one time acquired the original creator of this BMP - the Swedish company Hägglunds. Machines of this type have been produced since 1993, to date, more than 1100 units have been produced. This technique, besides Sweden and Great Britain, was supplied to other countries.

The Swedish armed forces currently have 350 CV90 infantry fighting vehicles (Stridsfordon 90). The improved version of the C9040A features many of the latest improvements and is capable of efficient fire while driving

The new version received an improved turret, optimization of the interior space of the vehicle, but at the same time its capacity was reduced from 8 to 7 paratroopers.

The main armament of the Swedish CV9040 is the automatic 40 mm Bofors Defense 40 / 70B cannon, capable of firing at ground and air targets. The gun's automatic equipment allows firing both single shots and fixed bursts of 4 or 8 ammunition, while the rate of fire is 5 shots per second. Both the gunner and the crew commander can aim the cannon.

The upgraded CV9040 BMP can be visually identified by the added damping cylinder at the front of the turret, which stabilizes the gun while firing on the move.

    fool This is not necessary for the border guards. And modernization is a temptation to take part in TMV. They will lose their neutral status and will have a headache instead of the usual enrichment. Swedes! Learn history, at least your homeland. repeat

      The Swedes do not have to have their own Armed Forces just to fight with someone. The military industrial complex is a highly intellectual area of ​​industry and the Swedes have the competencies, among a few countries, to create their own aircraft, armored vehicles, ships, in relation to the geographical features of their country. And they sell it for export. This is much better than relying on the export of hydrocarbons.

        Hydrocarbons are exported by all who have them, Sweden does it too. And Russia does not have such a frail military-industrial complex and products are bought despite the sanctions of the overseas owner.

          I don’t argue that the Russian military-industrial complex is not frail. This is not about this, but about the fact that Sweden's doctrine of "neutrality" does not imply a complete rejection of its army, and the presence of its own military-industrial complex.

      This is in the "basic" configuration. For export modifications of the CV90, the 30-mm "Bushmaster 2" and the bicaliber 35/50 mm "Bushmaster 3" are installed.

      And it did not get along badly after a number of modernizations in different countries, in various epostases (FOR, Navy ...) ...
      Not special, but characteristics, very much even (though the barrel survivability is 4000, minutes for 17 ..). If there are also b / p with remote undermining to it ... it becomes embarrassing for the domestic light armored vehicles sorting out all calibers, starting with machine-gun ones ...

          Range, angles of fire, caliber, rate of fire (by the way, they write that it was sacrificed in favor of accuracy) ... And I think that quite advanced countries, in terms of shooting, with generally recognized competencies in this area, would not just play it like that long-liver ...

      request The manufacturer is the "stepdaughter" of BAE Systems, and this is where the "British trail" ends. And so it is in service with ALL of Scandinavia, plus Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland. As part of the Danish Norwegian contingents, CV90s were spotted in Afghanistan.
      The Netherlands, according to the good old tradition, a number of used cars in 2014 were leaked to the Estonians.

        Is there nothing closer? References there to the article. And then I refused to subscribe to "ZVO" at 95, but what is in the country is gathering dust like kindling.

          They have now only BMP Warrior MCV-80 national development (since the mid-80s has been in service) ..... but it was in the mid-90s that the British Army consisted of two different BMPs, the above and discussed in the article ...
          References there to the article.

          It is necessary to search in the internet ... (found articles of a later period) and the "ZVO" file from the 75th year to the present. lies in my sofa, I even remember the cover of this issue, tk. it talked about the reform of the British Army and the armament of the 1st battalion division (FRG) and the 3rd MD (former MPD, Great Britain) that remain not reduced ...
          Apparently the BMPs under discussion were in service for a short time and only in one of the above divisions is that for sure ...
          By the way, I found an article with articles "ZVO" for different years, but what is needed is not there ...

            Well, yes, the old BMP remained in service, but the newer and more powerful one did not. It is logical.

              It is logical, because the older BMP is part of a series of armored vehicles, incl. BTR, KShM, BREM, etc ...
              Now the British are preparing a new series of armored vehicles on a new platform ...
              Will the Agex program be further developed? Surely yes, because in a few years the British army will have to choose a replacement for the Warrior infantry fighting vehicles. Agex seems to be a natural candidate in this respect. It is head and shoulders ahead of the Warrior in armament - the 30-mm Rarden cannon installed on the Warrior is not only weaker than the CT40, but is not automatic in the full sense of the word, since it is loaded with three-round clips. Unlike the modern and the on-board surveillance and sighting equipment of "Agex" and the means of communication - even taking into account its probable simplification in the version of the BMP compared to the BRM. The weight of the "Warrior", "tuned" for participation in foreign missions, reaches 38 tons. The Agex weighs the same, but the diesel engine installed on it develops a power of 810 hp, and the engine of the Warrior - only 550 hp. with.
              However, such a replacement is still a matter of a very distant future. In the meantime, the British were going to modernize "Warrior" under the WCSP program, but abandoned this idea. At the same time, the engine and transmission had to remain the same, the Rarden gun was planned to be replaced with ST40, and the commander and gunner were to be provided with independent sights. In 2011, Lockheed Martin was ordered 11 prototypes of the modernized BMP (in five different versions). They were all ready by June 2018 and then tested. Initially, it was planned to modernize the 388 BMP.
              In conclusion, it should be noted that the developer offers the British army a number of additional options for "Agex" - a medical evacuation vehicle, a bridgelayer, a fire support vehicle ("ersatz tank") with a 120-mm gun and others.

    A nice car, and riding "on armor" is made in a civilized design with a folding hatch-armor shield. There is a lot to learn from our designers.
