Polish tender calls for at least 1,500 rounds of ammunition, probably for the 152mm Dana SPH.
Sweden orders BvS10
BAE Systems has received a contract worth around $200 million from the Swedish Army to produce and deliver 127 BvS10 all-terrain vehicles.
Delivery of the vehicles is planned to begin in 2022 and be completed in 2024.
The BvS10 is a highly versatile vehicle that can traverse rocks, mountains, snow, swamps and arctic environments. Its amphibious capability allows it to seamlessly transition to an aquatic vehicle.
The modular design of the BvS10 allows for changing mission requirements and advanced battle management.
The BvS10s feature enhanced crew ergonomics, greater internal volume and advanced protection than its predecessor the Bv206.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, the BVS10 has a V-shaped hull for improved performance and survivability. The modular subsystems can include add-on armour, weapon mounts, load changer and cargo pods, among others. All BvS10s are equipped with Soucy’s Composite Rubber Tracks as standard.
The BvS10 Beowulf is the unarmoured variant of the platform.
Sweden already operates the BvS10 as well as its predecessor the Bv206. Adding more BvS10s to the fleet will increase the Swedish army’s ability to carry out its mission.
The BvS10 has been deployed for missions to Afghanistan, Central Africa, the Balkans and the Middle East.
