BAE Systems has delivered the first CV90 STING vehicle to the Norwegians at the company’s Örnsköldsvik facility in Sweden. 

The delivery of the STING, an engineering variant of the CV90 vehicles, is the latest milestone for the program. 

“We have been working extremely closely with BAE Systems Hägglunds over the course of 26 months with this comprehensive contract,” said Colonel Ragnar Wennevik, Programme Manager Norwegian Defence Logistics Organization Land Systems. “Over the past six months, BAE Systems has delivered two of the five planned variants of the Norwegian CV90 fleet in a timely manner.” 

We were awarded the contract in June 2012 to upgrade and deliver a total of 144 CV90 vehicles to the Norwegian Army. The first CV90 IFV, an infantry fighting variant, was delivered in February of this year. 

Under the CV90 contract to Norway, we will deliver five vehicle variants, including 74 infantry fighting, 21 reconnaissance, 15 command, 16 engineering, 16 multi-role and two driver training vehicles. The multi-role vehicles are designed to undertake different functions, including mortar carrier and logistics roles. 

Norwegian Industry is playing a major role. One partner is Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, which leads a team of Thales and Vinghøg. Another partner is Ritek AS from Levanger responsible for production of the engineering vehicle.
