The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) and BAE Systems have submitted a joint bid, offering the CV90 combat vehicle to Slovakia.

The move comes after Slovakia’s Ministry of Defence released tenders and sent requests for proposals to several countries, for 152 new infantry fighting vehicles (IFV) in multiple variants.

FMV and BAE Systems offered to develop the CV90 vehicles, in collaboration with the local Slovak industry. The bid also includes other related aspects such as support with training, tactics, and future development.

BAE Systems Hägglunds produces the CV90 vehicle in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. It has delivered the combat vehicle to several European customers.

BAE Systems Hägglunds managing director Tommy Gustafsson-Rask said: “BAE Systems’ approach is built on strategic collaboration with local suppliers, enabling them to play a high-value role in the development, production, training, and support of the CV90 MkIV, and all its variants.

“We are committed to exceeding the mandated 40% requirement for direct content as we work closely with Slovak industry to deliver the most capable, combat-proven IFV on the market today.”
