Hi guys,

@ Jeremy:
The basic CV9040 are an IFV just like the Bradley, BMP-2, Warrior etc. The chassi have been used for a number of variants including an AA vehicle.
The versions in use by the Swedish army can be seen here (sorry, no English version)

/Cheers,
/E



This is correct but the IFV version can also be used against low flying aircrafts and helicopters with good result.
But it has not any radar as the CV 90 AAV.

Hi guys,

A few in action pictures of Swedish vehicles in Afghanistan can be found here . Among them Stridsfordon 9040C (CV9040C) and Bärgningsbandvagn 90C (recovery version).

Thank you.

Newer versions seem to have some sort of armor upgrade installed like those CV9040Cs:

Versions in Afghanistan additionally have barracuda (?) camouflage applied.

Nice build up.

I wonder if there is a reactive armor package - if these vehicles go into harms way? The sides of that body just look so bare after looking at Bradleys, Tuna Boats and BMPs lately, almost like an M-113

Gents, I thought I would share some pix of my recently finished CV9040. I only added AFV Club tracks, rest of the kit is oob. The build was really a pleasure! I would like to see some C-Version of this vehicle to depict an ISAF-Version... or some CV9030 swiss edition...

Enjoy and share your thoughts!

I am not familiar with this vehicle. I am curious as to whether this is a SPAAG, or is it strictly for ground combat?

Thanks. Any photos of that gun sticking out of CV9040??


Imagine the above machine gun, without the front sight and painted green.
The barrel sticks out about 50-60 cm.
Don't have an image right now but will look for one.

Link to review of the CV9040 kit by Erik Gustavssons.
Cheers,
/E


So Erik's review states that
"missing from the turret is the machine gun barrel. I belive academy has worked from images of parked vehicles, and these have the machine gun removed. But when the gun is mounted the barrel protrudes a bit outside the vehicle. In 1/35th scale I think almost a centimetre. The machine gun used on the 9040B is the Kulspruta m/39, which is a variant of the Browning .30.
The bad thing is that the berforated jacket around the barrel is different. The standard browning has circular holes, the Ksp m/39 has elongated holes."

What does this Kulspruta M/39 look like? My google search turned up nothing. Anyone has photos of this? Frenchy?

It’s just wear and tear from small stones and gravel.

The wheels are made of aluminum and the paint don't stick well to aluminum.

One thing i can;t figure out is what causes the wear pattern on the rim of the wheel?

See the above model, he has represented it well, I've also seen it in shots of the real IFV.

Anyone know the answer?

I'm building one for an IPMS review.

Great kit, it contains perhaps the smallest injected parts I've ever seen!

Nice photo! I've just bought Academy CV9040 off of Ebay yesterday and mine should arrive in 10 days or so. Looking forward to it.

Is the release imminent? The suspense is killing me!

Richard
