What is the "driver school wagon"? A way of hands-on training drivers in groups?

What happened to the redesigned turret that is on the CV9030NF1?
When in doubt blame UGBEAR.

It's a driving instruction vehicle, yes. Will probably be relegated to the KESK training unit.

Belive the only upgrade the NF1 model got was mine protection, ventilation system and rear camera. They will probably recieve the new optic and digital system package.

The new IFVs will be distributed among telemark bataljon and panserbattaljonen, (mech inf battalions). While the older will probably got to the engineer battalion along with the AEVs.

apparently the first cvs have been shipped to sweden for upgrades. Its a complete overhaul with a new armour package, RCWS, optics and engine. in total it will make it 10 tonnes heavier.

So....
In Singapore the Bionix Command post has a dummy gun installed.
Does the CV-90 Command post have a dummy gun or is it functional?

I don't know about the Norwegian one, but the Swedish command version of the CV90 does have a dummy gun, yep.

And makes sense, the enemy is always keen to shoot officers, i would rather go for NCOs but thats an other Topic.
Thanks for the info Orcbuster, i trained once with a swedish infantry platoon with cv90s, damn impressive those vehicles.

Does the command CV-90 have a dummy gun but a real COAX? Because the Bionix in Singapore has no COAX port...just a dummy gun. I was wondering if you guys do the same thing.

Swedish command CV-90 got a KSP m/39B (Browning M1919) mounted in COAX for defence. It is likely that the Norwegian variant also got an mg.
