CV90 / Strf 90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) / Light Tank

Estonia has received the first batch of CV9035 infantry fighting vehicles from the Netherlands.

Netherlands delivered 12 vehicles along with an armored recovery vehicle to the 1st Infantry Brigade at Estonia's Tapa Army Base.

Estonia has signed a contract with Netherlands for the purchase of 44 used CV9035 NL IFVs and six Leopard 1 tank-based support vehicles in 2014 for US $124 million.

All the vehicles, which will be delivered by 2018, are to undergo maintenance and repairs before arriving in Estonia, the Estonian Ministry of Defense said.

In addition to the Dutch IFVs, Estonia will also be purchasing a total of 37 IFV CV90 bodies from Norway, which will be rebuilt as armored support vehicles, for about $705,000. The vehicles from Norway are expected to arrive in Estonia sometime this and next year.
