With this bill, two of Norway’s primary units, the Telemark Battalion and the Armoured Battalion will receive new and upgraded vehicles to cover shortfalls in their current inventories of medium armoured vehicles. The bill calls for modifications to existing CV90 vehicles to accommodate new roles and systems, including added mine protection, improved C4ISR integration, rubber band tracks and Remote Weapon Stations for self defence. In addition, Norway will procure additional CV90 hulls from BAE Systems which will bring the total Norwegian inventory to 146 CV90s in different configurations.
In addition, the project will include procurement of unmanned aerial and ground vehicles, remote ground sensors and C4ISR systems.
Total value of the overall project is estimated at just under NOK 10 billion (USD 1.74 billion). Deliveries are expected to commence already in 2013, and to be completed by 2018.
Wenn man sich die bis 2016 geplanten Rüstungsbeschaffungen für die norwegischen Streitkräfte betrachtet, wird man direkt neidisch (Etwa die Menge, die in unseren Breiten in Zeiträumen zwischen 30 und 40 Jahren angeschafft wird.):
