BAE Systems announced last week that the Norwegian Army awarded it a contract to supply the Army with 20 additional CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles worth more than $50 million. The new order for 12 engineering and eight multi-carrier variants, scheduled for delivery in 2023, will increase the Army’s CV90 fleet to 164 vehicles.

According to the company, Norway is one of seven CV90 users. The others are Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands. Norway is also the latest customer to enhance its fleet of combat-proven CV90s following significant life extension and mid-life upgrade contracts from Switzerland and the Netherlands, BAE said.
