About the CV9030N - Infantry Fighting Vehicle:
The CV90 is a Swedish design from the 1990s by BAE Systems Hägglunds, which is now one of the most modern and advanced IFV/light tanks in the world. It was designed with 7 capability requirements, the most important ones being mobility, anti-armor cannon, anti-air capabilities, protection and armor. Due to using rubber tracks, it excelled at maneuverability in difficult terrain like snow and mud commonly faced in the north. It also has some of the most advanced anti-air capabilities ever seen. For example, integrated virtual technology that allows every tank in a team to see and track the enemy if it’s been spotted by just one of the CVs. There’s plenty of variations of the CV90, a few with different cannons, some with the turret removed and replaced with anti-air cannons, and others with bridges and cranes for engineer requirements. There’s also command, medic, and some extended variants for fitting more troops. Some of the newer CV models are developing and incorporating camouflage that reads the surroundings and adapts its color to the environment using advanced screen armor.
This specific variant has the 35mm bushmaster cannon, and a remotely operated 12.7mm gun on top, and it has a coaxial 7.62mm machine-gun and smoke grenade launchers on the sides. This vehicle has the name "Valkyrje" on the side; a reference to the Norse Gods "Chooser of Slain". They were sent by Odin to choose which slain were worthy of a place in Valhalla and Asgard.
