BAE Systems has delivered the first upgraded CV9030 tracked armoured infantry fighting vehicle to the Norwegian army. The new vehicle fleet has significantly enhanced protection, survivability, situational awareness and interoperability, incorporating lessons learned from Norwegian, Swedish and Danish operations in Afghanistan with CV90.
The CV9030 was deployed in Afghanistan by the Norwegian army.
     
The vehicles will run on the latest rubber tracks, combat-proven by Norwegian forces in Afghanistan.

The CV90 Norway project will deliver a fully-digitised flexible fleet of 74 infantry fighting, 21 reconnaissance, 15 command, 16 engineering, 16 multi-role and two driver training vehicles. The multi-role vehicles can fulfill different functions, including mortar carrier and logistics roles. Deliveries of the production vehicles start in January 2015 and continue to 2017.

The roll-out of this pre-series infantry fighting vehicle was attended by Öystein Bö, Secretary of State Norway and Carl von der Esch, State Secretary for Sweden.

Norway’s existing 103 CV90s, delivered from the mid-1990s, represented the first export contract for CV90. In June 2012 we received a $750m (£0.5 bn) contract from the Norwegian Government to upgrade the fleet.

As part of this programme, we are also building more than a hundred all-new vehicle chassis to take Norway’s CV90 fleet to 144 vehicles in five different configurations, including a variant equipped with a sensor suite for improved surveillance capability.
