Sweden acquires hundreds of logistics vehicles

The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration has placed two orders with Scania and Volvo for 487 logistics vehicles, with initial deliveries scheduled for 2022.


The FMV placed two orders with a total value of approximately SEK700 million ($82 million) to replace an ageing Swedish military fleet.


Sweden also plans to procure other military vehicles for its ground forces. In September, the FMV confirmed its intention to join the collaborative effort between Finland and Latvia to develop the Common Armoured Vehicle System (CAVS).

The country is also teaming Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands and the UK in the Collaborative All-Terrain Vehicle (CATV) programme.
