The CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) was developed by BAE Systems Hägglunds of Sweden and first entered service in 1992. It is in service with the militaries of Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and Switzerland. The CV90 has a crew of three (driver, commander, and gunner) and can transport up to six fully-equipped infantrymen. The vehicle is armed with a 40mm automatic cannon and a 7.62mm co-axial machine gun. It is also equipped with grenade launchers, anti-tank missiles, and smoke grenade launchers. The CV90 has a top speed of 70 km/h and a range of 500 km. The CV90 was designed to provide superior protection for its occupants while still being able to engage enemy targets effectively. The hull and turret are made of steel and composites which provide protection against small arms fire and shell fragments. The vehicle is also equipped with an NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) protection system. The CV90 has been constantly updated since its introduction and the latest version features a new engine, improved suspension, increased armor protection, and a new weapon system.​
