The CV9040C (Stridsfordon 9040C) is an upgraded version of the CV9040B for use in international missions. All-around armor protect was increased with add-on modules, a device to set fuses for firing programmed ammunition such as the 3P (Kulsgr 95LK) was added, and all optical equipment was upgraded with laser safe eye protection. The engine and braking system was also adjusted to accommodate the additional weight of the add-on armor package (approximately five more tons). Additionally, both the smoke dischargers and 7.62mm machine gun has been moved to the top of the turret. Note that the machine gun remains coaxial with the 40mm gun.
Due to space limitations, the dismount section for the CV9040C is reduced to 6 men (compared with 8 for the CV9040B) equipped with M136 (AT-4) anti-armor weapons, an MG3, and 5.56mm rifles.
Please refer the "Vehicle Manual CV9040" manuals in the "Documents" folder of the Steel Beasts Professional PE start menu folder for an in-depth discussion of this vehicle's crew positions and systems.
Beginning with revision 4.156 the CV9040C may be equipped with the Diehl Active Vehicle Protection System (AVePS) to enhance protection against RPG and ATGM threats.
