The BAE CV90 Armadillo IFV Family brings extremely high levels of protection and flexibility in payload and battlefield utility to a new range of vehicles using common CV90 components. The flexible modular design involves a rear roof section which can be unbolted to allow simple changeover between different mission fits, ensuring up to 80 per cent commonality between variants.
The result is a vehicle that offers high mobility, payload and protection while at the same time being reliable, cost efficient, and, above all, offering a low logistics footprint.
“Recent conflicts have shown the need for higher levels of protection and a high degree of flexibility to meet new threats and rapidly changing operational environments – and CV90 Armadillo offers unparalleled protection,” said Jan Soderstrom, Managing Director, Global Combat Systems Vehicles.
“By removing the turret, we have a vehicle with a combat weight of 27 tonnes, with an additional eight tonnes available for equipment or extra armour. The entire vehicle architecture has been built with ease of interoperability with tomorrow’s digital soldier in mind.”
The Armadillo retains CV90’s excellent reliability and its modular design improves its logistics footprint still further. Equipped with a Saab LEDS150 hard-kill self-protection system, a BAE Systems Lemur remote weapon station, and external fire suppression equipment to deal with such urban warfare
