Janes
has learned some details of the combat performance of Ukrainian CV90 infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) donated by Sweden. The IFV is seeing its first high-intensity combat in Ukraine.

Previously, Danish, Dutch, Norwegian, and Swedish CV90s had been in combat, mainly in Afghanistan but also in Liberia, Dan Lindell, CV90 platform manager at BAE Systems Hägglunds, told journalists on the first day of DSEI 2023, held from 12 to 15 September in London.

In Ukraine, the CV90’s 40 mm gun is proving to be lethal, and even though it is an older version of the vehicle, it is equipped with modern sensors and has a night-time capability that is being used in Ukraine. Its mobility and protection are also having an impact, with no Ukrainian crew members or embarked infantry losing their lives despite three CV90s having suffered battle damage.

However, the CV90s face logistics challenges, and their Barracuda camouflage nets were initially placed incorrectly on the vehicles.
