The Czech Republic has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Sweden and Britain’s BAE Systems to acquire 210 CV90 tracked combat vehicles.

Contract negotiations will take place in the first half of 2023.

Under the terms of the MoU, the governments of Sweden and the Czech Republic will cooperate on military affairs including training, support and ongoing education for troops and equipment operators, as well as collaboration on the acquisition and support of CV90 combat vehicles. The agreement also lays out the possibility of future collaboration between the two nations on the development of upgrades, new technology and on-going support for the CV90, the company said in a statement.

The MoU specifies that the ongoing negotiations with BAE Systems will include: reaching an agreement for the purchase of 210 infantry fighting vehicles; meeting the need for indigenous long term support for the vehicles; and, delivering on a requirement of a commitment for a robust Czech industrial participation program.

Under the proposed agreement, the Czech Army will receive the newest iteration of the CV90, known as the CV90MkIV, with the latest advanced capabilities and digital technology. The vehicle combines improved battlefield speed and handling with an upgraded electronic architecture.
