The Swedish Army is acquiring an Archer self-propelled howitzer cabin egress trainer, expanding use of the KMW system already used by CV90 armoured vehicle crews.

The Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) has commissioned KMW to supply a further cabin for the Swedish Army's vehicle egress trainer system. 

Contract signature took place at the I/ITSEC 2022 event in Orlando on 29 November and the agreement includes development, manufacture and integration of an interchangeable BAE Systems Archer self-propelled artillery system cabin for the existing training device and an option for additional vehicle cabins. 

The Archer cabin will be manufactured by Sweden's W5 Solutions and is due to be delivered by the end of 2024.
