According to the last reports I've seen it also has enough room to carry
3-4 grunts, which would make it a *very* heavily armed IFV :-/

Jane's (1994 edition) lists it as a "light tank"; the Swedish
is "Infantry Cannon Vehicle" or something like that
The CV90105 hasn't yet been bought by the Swedish army AFAIK, but it has
replaced the Infanterikanonvagn  91 in the manufacturer's (Hägglunds)

Oh, BTW - why are people complaining about GW's Rhino APC looking like a
box on threads? Just take a look at the M113... <g>
