|German Company IBD presents evolution concept for MBT122 tank and CV9040 infantry armoured.|
During the Swedish Armed Forces' event "Markstridsdagarna", FMV and IBD/ÅKB presented results from joint ongoing protection studies for the MBT 122 and CV9040 platforms.

IBD/ÅKB has adapted the Evolution Kit for the MBT 122 and the CV9040 platforms and thereby achieved increased protection performance for both platforms at relatively low or no weight increase, depending on selected protection solution. Mobility and fighting capability are thereby still maintained at a well balanced survivability concept.
For both platforms the focus has been to maintain the existing "cold war" protection capabilities and as well increase the protection against all relevant actual threats such as recent hand held anti tank weapons (eg RPGs) and IEDs.
