According to Malyar, CV-90 infantry fighting vehicles are called the best infantry fighting vehicles in the world. It is designed and manufactured in Sweden. The main advantage of this BMP is taking care of the crew (three people) and the landing party (up to eight people), “because no other BMP has such protection as the CV-90.
