To response at this new asks, BAE Systems offers a unique competence to extend, improve and transform the capabilities of vehicle systems.
The CVRT is a family of agile, mobile armoured fighting vehicles. Its variants have the ability to fulfil a wide range of scouting and combat missions, as well as a number of support and logistic tasks. Its exceptionally low ground pressure provides outstanding mobility. Combined with transportability, simple design and reliability, the vehicle provides a unique strategic and tactical advantage.
The CVRT Family has a history of development spanning over 40 years. since first deliveries in 1972, more than 3,500 vehicles has been delivered to 23 customer nations, and it now has an extensive history of successful service all over the world.
Throughout the vehicle's life, BAE Systems has supported, enhanced and upgraded the family, allowing its operators to retain the upper hand on the battlefield. Protection and firepower enhancements have seen the vehicle weight increase from 8,000 to 12,250 kg. At the same time, performance upgrades have maintained a balance with mobility as well as boosting capability in harsh environments.
