BAE Systems and Milrem LCM have signed a long-term agreement to support Estonia’s fleet of CV9035 infantry fighting vehicles, BAE Systems announced on 17 April.

Under the agreement, Milrem LCM - part of Patria - will provide maintenance and repair services for CV9035 vehicles from its facilities in Estonia. The agreement forms a part of BAE Systems’ larger contract with the Estonian government to maintain the 44 CV9035 vehicles procured from the Netherlands in 2014.

Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, vice president and general manager for BAE Systems’ Hägglunds business, said: ‘Our work with Milrem LCM will provide long-term benefits to the Estonian Defence Forces by sustaining and developing these vehicles for years to come.’

The two companies have also partnered to pursue an upcoming opportunity to modernise CV90 support vehicles for the Estonian Centre for Defence Investment. The work will encompass maintenance, repair and rebuild of 37 CV90 Mk I vehicles acquired from Norway.
