This video is from 2000 and the Canadians don’t have any CV 90s. However, Canadian Forces looks at CV90 for new Close Combat Vehicle.
Murdoc continues to be a fan of the 40mm Bofors. A while back I noted the Danes were ordering more CV 90-35 (with a 35mm/50 Bushmaster cannon) IFVs. The CV 90 series has really caught on and looks to be a solid design.
A 35mm or 40mm gunned version of something like this might make a good support platform for airmoble forces, but the CV 90s weigh in at 20-35 tons. By comparison, the M551 Sheridan light tank was around 15 tons and the LAV is around 12 tons. Even the Stryker MGS with a 105mm tank gun is has a base weight of under 19 tons.
