BAE Systems Hägglunds has been awarded a contract by the Danish government to provide systems integration, capability upgrades and support for long-term sustainment of Denmark’s fleet of 44 CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles and BV206 All-Terrain Vehicles. BAE Systems announced the award on 22 September.

The agreement, signed with the Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO), involves comprehensive industrial cooperation between BAE Systems and industrial partners in Denmark. Work will cover systems safety, government-furnished equipment integration, prototyping, and maintenance, repairs, and overhaul. 

Col Anders Maerkedahl Pedersen, head of land division at DALO, said: ‘This agreement with BAE Systems Hägglunds is a very important milestone for DALO and the Danish Army. With this partnership, we will sustain and develop these highly advanced platforms during the many years to come.’

The CV90 provides high survivability and lethality, anti-tank capability, air defence, high tactical and strategic mobility, and interoperability in any terrain or tactical environment.
