Combat Vehicle 90 is an armored vehicle developed by BAE Systems for the Swedish military. This advanced vehicle makes use of the kind of active dampening suspension system more commonly associated with Formula One vehicles. The advantage here is that this tracked vehicle will offer improved speed and handling on the battlefield.

The suspension system will ensure that the vehicle is protected against bad bumps, so vehicle operators don't have to worry about losing a tread or having their shatter drive wheels taken out.

The advanced technology found in Combat Vehicle 90 is expected to offer improved performance over other armored vehicles and savings in terms of maintenance in the long-term -- and most importantly, helping protect and strengthen soldiers on the front-lines.
