A vehicle of each type is now finished. First delivery will be presented publicly in 2 days.

recon variant seems to have gotten a new turret.

That RCWS is pretty high profile for the CV9030s. Something with a lower height would have probably been better.

I don't think the turret on the center variant is new, it just has applique armor like on the CV9030NF1s used in Afghanistan.
When in doubt blame UGBEAR.

You mean these?

From my experience all the norwegian cv90s in afghanistan have been of this variant. And there haven't been that many of them down there.

Also, all CV9030Ns have applique armor

new video showcasing the new CV-9030N

Adding a javelin function to the RWS would actually make it a lot more capable in the AT role. Wonder if this will become standard practice in the future.

Those things make a very satisfying THUMP THUMP THUMP when they fire.

Video was a little silly in the usual way defense contractors tend to make them, and I kinda have to chuckle at the brand new factory fresh green paint jobs (that will not last long if they get put into training quick at a decent tempo), but its good to see these upgrades come forward. Any other plans for upgrades for other VICs coming?

I am referring to these vehicles with extra armor on hull and turret which have been referred to as CV9030NF1.
