Manned firing trials of the prototype/demonstrator of BAE Systems Hagglunds’ CV90 twin 120 mm Mjolner mortar system are now underway and it is expected that the Critical Design Review (CDR) will take place by the end of 2017, which will lead to the design freeze and allow production to commence.

When completed, the Mjolner system will enter Swedish Army service as the GRKPBV90.

Major Nils Carlsson, Future Organisation Mortar Development Officer of the Swedish Army provided additional details of the Mjolner programme at the Defence IQ Future Mortar conference held in London, UK.

Production of the twin 120 mm Mjolner turret systems will start in 2018 with deliveries to run from late 2018 or early 2019 through to 2020.
