BAE signs Estonia CV90 support contract
BAE Systems has been awarded contracts by the Estonian government to support the country's fleet of CV9035 infantry fighting vehicles (IFV). The company announced the awards on 5 April.
The agreements cover configuration management for new IFV capabilities, as well as maintenance, repairs, and spare parts. The contracts cover 44 CV9035 vehicles acquired from the Netherlands in 2014.
Margus Padjus, project manager of the Procurement Department at Estonia's Centre for Defence Investment, said: 'The armoured manoeuvring capability programme is one of the most important capability development projects of the last decade in Estonia, which will increase the combat capability of Estonian defence forces remarkably.'
Estonia is one of seven nations operating more than 1,200 CV90s.
