Introduction

The CV9035 is the second of the export models of BAE Systems Hägglunds, CV90 (Combat Vehicle 90) tracked Infantry Fighting Vehicle. An improved model of the CV9030 Mk2, it features a 35mm auto cannon and is considered the Mk3 in Sweden.

The Royal Netherlands Army was the first export customer to order the CV9035 in 2004, followed 1 year later by the Danish Army. Since entering Dutch army service, surplus CV9035 have been sold to Estonia.

The BAE Systems prototype for the British Army FRES SV Scout program was also based on the Mk3, with the ASCOD 2 design eventually being selected.

The CV9035 incorporates a Munition Programmer for Air Burst Munition and has a target-driven gunner Man Machine Interface (MMI). The Fire Control System  autonomously sets:

• The type of ammunition
• Lead – and super elevation angles
• Fuse setting – air burst, impact or delayed detonation
• Burst – Dispersion patterns

The CV9035 is the first of the CV90 IFV models to feature an Commanders Independent Sight, enabling him to search, engage or hand over targets to the Gunner, much like a 3rd Generation Main Battle Tank.

Protection

The CV9035 features a new base armor with attachment bolts fitted across the external surface of the vehicle.  These are used to mount modular armor such as MEXAS, AMAP and RUAG’s range of RoofPRO-P Armor as well as other passive armors either during the manufacturing stage or added later, mission dependant.

The vehicle features full NBC protection and is compatible with soft or hard kill Active Protection Systems as per the clients requirement.

As standard, the CV9035 features a soft Kill APS that classifies targets, gives threat warnings via the Vehicle   Information System (VIS) and supports the driver with manoeuvring instructions, whilst simultaneously deploying countermeasures, to reduce the risk of being hit.

44 surplus Dutch CV9035NL were purchased by Estonia in 2014. Deliveries started in 2016. In 2016 an additional 35 surplus vehicles were purchased from Norway.

184 CV9035 were ordered in 2004 for the Dutch Army. Deliveries were started in 2007 and were completed in 2012. The Netherlands sold 44 surplus vehicles to Estonia.

In January 2021 the Royal Dutch Army took delivery of their first CV9035 vehicles that had gone through their mid-life upgrade. A total of 122 vehicles will go through the program, which will extend their service life until 2039.

The principal upgrade is BAE’s new D-Series turret, complete with dual Spike ATGM launcher and Iron Fist APS giving the vehicle similar capabilities to the CV90 MkIV.

Patria AMV35 Hybrid Features The CV9035 Turret For The Australian Army Land 400 Program

Land 400 was a program run by the Australian Army that was seeking the replacement of its current fighting vehicles. Phase 2 concentrated on the replacement for the ageing 8×8 ASLAV. BAE System and Patria submitted the Patria AMV35 which was a hybrid vehicle consisting of the Patria AMV 8×8 hull and BAE Systems-Hägglunds CV9035 Turret.

Phase 3 of the project seeked a tracked Infantry Fighting Vehicle to replaced the M113. BAE offered the CV9035 for this phase of the project.

The Australian Army selected the German 8×8 Boxer to replace the ASLAV and South Korean K-21 IFV for Phase 3.
