BAE Systems will supply an additional 102 BvS10 all-terrain vehicles to Sweden under a $120 million order announced on 19 December. The order is part of an extended contract option taken out by the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) when it purchased 48 BvS10 armoured vehicles in January 2012.

BAE Systems will deliver the vehicles in troop carrier, command vehicle, ambulance, and logistic carrier variants. Deliveries will begin in 2014 and run through 2015.

The BvS10s are designed to provide soldiers with increased protection. They come equipped with the Protector remote weapon station, radio, and battlefield management systems. Smoke grenade launchers are also fitted to give 360 degree coverage.

The vehicles will be manufactured at BAE Systems Hägglunds´ production facility in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden.
