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.
