Vehicle mounted Mortar for the Swedish CV90
BAE Systems has received a €60.5 million contract for the installation of vehicle mounted mortar systems on Swedish Army CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles. “The installation of the company’s mortar system,
known as Mjölner, on 40 CV90s will considerably increase the indirect fire capability of the vehicles to support mechanized battalions,” the company stated.
CV90 is a family of Swedish tracked combat vehicles designed for the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) by BAE Systems Hägglunds and BAE Systems Bofors, which provides the vehicle’s turrets with over 500 in use with the Swedish Army.
“The delivery of the Mjölner solution to the Swedish Army allows it to field a capability well adapted for the CV90 while enhancing the fleet’s firepower,” said Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, managing director of BAE Systems Hägglunds. First deliveries are scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2019.
