Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Today the secretary of defence announced a midlife upgrade for the CV90 tracked IFV in use by the Dutch army.
The total cost is estimated at 660 million euros.

The update contains:
- New missile defense shields, that detect and attack incoming missiles.
- A thermal sight for the driver.
- Spike AT missile defense.
- New rangefinders and sights for the gun and the Spike.
- New IT infrastructure and a new battlefield management system.

BAE Systems Hägglunds (BSH) asked more money for the project, several items have therefore be cancelled, among them new camouflage.
Not all vehicles get the  MLU, only 122 of the available 141.

First deleiveries start in 2024 with the las vehicle deliverd in 2026.
