SEP: tracked, or wheeled(click to view full) The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has placed a development order valued at around 500 million Swedish Kronor ($68.8 million equivalent) for SEP hybrid drive armored vehicles from BAE Systems Hagglunds. Final deliverables include 2 SEP 6X6 wheeled vehicles and 2 SEP tracked vehicles, each of which will be produced in both troop transport and logistic configurations. The Swedish Defence Force plans to have the SEP system in operation by 2014, and SEP has also received a contract from Britain’s FRES vehicle program as a demonstrator platform with further potential applications. BAE Systems Hagglunds’ President Sven Kagevall also sees further applications, and prospects, for the SEP: “This is a significant order for BAE Systems Hagglunds… Since the first delivery of CV90 [armored vehicles] to Sweden [in] 1994, BAE Systems Hagglunds has sold 20 billion Swedish Kronor worth of CV90 on the export market. I am convinced that when we look back at the export figures for SEP, these figures will far exceed those of CV90. SEP will be a very good export business.”
