BAE Systems announced Monday the company has signed a $200 million deal with Sweden to deliver 127 more BvS10 all-terrain vehicles.

The company said deliveries of the vehicles, which will include both the command and control and logistics platforms, will begin in 2022 and conclude in 2024.

“The investment from Sweden provides the Swedish Army with more of these extremely mobile, capable and robust vehicles. This continued investment in the BvS10 is an important step toward further opportunities in Sweden and internationally for the BvS10 and its Beowulf unarmored variant,” Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, managing director of BAE Systems Hägglunds, said in a statement.

BAE Systems’ Beowulf, the unarmored variant of the BvS10, has been selected for the Army’s Cold Weather All-Terrain Vehicle (CATV) competitive prototyping effort (Defense Daily, April 12). 

The CATV program to replace the Army’s legacy Small Unit Support Vehicles, also built by BAE Systems and in service since the 1980s, is a key piece of the Army’s new Arctic strategy, released in March, which calls for procuring a new platform to offer improved mobility in cold-weather, mountainous conditions.

Mark Signorelli, vice president of Business Development for BAE Systems Platforms & Services, told reporters last month Beowulf has been extensively tested in Arctic conditions and has capability for amphibious operations.

Oshkosh Defense [OSK] has also been selected for the CATV prototyping effort, and has teamed with Singapore’s ST Engineering to offer a version of its Bronco 3 platform.
