Ar­madillo de­liv­ered

SP's MAI - - MILITARY UPDATES -

BAE Sys­tems has de­liv­ered a new vari­ant of CV90 Ar­madillo, fin­ished in tra­di­tional Dan­ish Army cam­ou­flage, to the Dan­ish Army Oks­bol base for com­pet­i­tive eval­u­a­tion to meet Den­mark’s ar­moured per­son­nel car­rier re­quire­ment.

Ar­madillo of­fers class-lead­ing pro­tec­tion and op­ti­mum mis­sion flex­i­bil­ity. A “hot” pro­duc­tion line (CV90 is in build for Nor­way) and six ex­ist­ing op­er­a­tors mean a proven lowrisk so­lu­tion, both for ini­tial pur­chase and long-term sus­tain­ment and up­grade.

Den­mark is look­ing to re­place its ex­ist­ing M113s in a deal which will also in­clude a 15-year in­no­va­tive sup­port con­tract.

Ar­madillo is a tur­ret­less ver­sion of CV90 with bal­lis­tic and mine pro­tec­tion which ex­ceed Stanag 4a/b. Re­moval of the tur­ret gives six tonnes of “spare” pay­load for fur­ther pro­tec­tion or other pur­poses on top of its “fight­ing con­fig­u­ra­tion” while its state-of-the-art elec­tronic ar­chi­tec­ture al­lows “plug and play” of new sys­tems.
