Combat Vehicle 90
In the middle of the '80s Hagglunds Vehicle started the development of a new family of Combat Vehicles called Combat Vehicle 90 for the Swedish Army. Five prototypes were delivered in 1988 and were tested during extensive trials for three years. In March 1991, the Swedish Army placed the first series production order for the Swedish Combat Vehicle 90 Family. The first deliveries started in 1993 and present order backlog for Sweden will last until 2002.
CV90 has met great interest from other countries, like Norway, where a contract for 104 units of CV9030 IFV was signed by the Norwegian Army Materiel Command in April 1994. The contract was won after more than two years of extensive and highly competitive trials between five of the world's leading defence industries. Series deliveries were completed in November 2000. CV9030 IFV has also been ordered by the Swiss (186 units) and Finnish (57 units) Defence Procurement Agency's. Deliveries start in 2002.
The latest member of the Bv206 family is the improved armoured version called BvS10. The BvS10 is a new larger vehicle, with improved load capacity, based on the experience gained from more than 25 years of articulated vehicle design and production. The BvS10 has the same superior mobility in difficult terrain as the Bv 206 combined with the same speed on road an in terrain as modern APC's. BvS10 offers load capacity up to 5 tons. The newly developed chassis, power train and steering units gives the vehicle considerably enhanced speed and comfort on road and in terrain compared to other similar vehicles. It has a low signature and is built for the highest level of tactical and strategic mobility.
AMOS is a mortar system, which comprises of a turret with two 120-mm breech-loading mortar barrels mounted side by side.

Compared with conventional mortars, AMOS increases the firepower, mobility and protection.
