ÖRNSKÖLDSVIK, Sweden--Dec. 20, 2013; BAE Systems has signed a $120 million (SEK 800m) contract to supply an additional 102 BvS10 all-terrain vehicles to Sweden.

The new sale is the result of an extended contract option taken out when the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) announced a purchase of 48 BvS10 armored vehicles from BAE Systems Hägglunds in January 2012.

The vehicles will be delivered in different variants — troop carrier, command vehicle, ambulance, and logistic carrier. They will be manufactured in BAE Systems Hägglunds’ refurbished production facility in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden with deliveries beginning in 2014 and ending in 2015.

The Swedish go-anywhere BvS10s feature enhanced crew ergonomics, internal volume and increased protection, plus integration of the Protector remote weapon station, radio, and battlefield management systems. Smoke grenade launchers are also fitted to give 360 degree coverage.

Sweden, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and France all operate the BvS10 and more than 10,000 of the earlier, smaller Bv206 family of vehicles have been sold around the world. BAE Systems Hägglunds’ all-terrain vehicle family is also gaining interest for use in humanitarian aid and disaster relief around the globe.

BAE Systems Hägglunds is part of BAE Systems, Inc. in the United States, which employs 40,000 around the world — approximately 34,000 in the United States — with major operations in 38 states, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Israel, and South Africa.
