BAE Systems signs pre-production contract with the Swedish Defence $4 million

The vehicles – CV90 MkIIIC – will replace the 50 CV90s that Sweden has supplied to Ukraine. This first-stage contract is to agree and finalise the configuration and programme scheduling with the intention of signing a production contract in early 2024.

“We are proud of our longstanding relationship with Sweden and this contract is an important step in continuing to provide the critical combat-proven CV90s the Swedish Army needs as it maintains the sovereignty and protection of our nation” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, Managing Director of BAE Systems Hägglunds.
