  • Suspension wheels, tracks and bogies are 15 mm thick.
  • Belly armour and the bottom plate above the tracks are 10 mm thick.
  • Mudguards are 5 mm thick.
  • Additionally to the external armour, armour plates are also found inside the vehicle:
Spaced Armour Front (Slope angle) Sides
Hull 10 mm (except driver view port) 10 mm Top


  • Inner armour plates protect the sides of the crew compartment (the upper section over the tracks only).
  • The engine is separated from the driver position and the crew compartment by an armour plate.
  • The driver viewport is a weak spot as it is the only place where the inner armour does not overlap with the external armour.

The CV 90105 TML has very weak armour which cannot protect against calibres of 14.5 mm or larger. It also has hullbreak mechanics which accentuates the poor armour.

The small caliber of the ksp 58 machine gun makes it largely ineffective against all armoured vehicles but the ones with an open compartment. It still can be used to ping targets as a rangefinding help.

Usage in battles


The CV 90105 TML has great mobility thanks to its powerful engine and light weight. With good top speed, a very quick reverse, good mobility in turns, and very good acceleration, this vehicle's mobility stays competitive even when uptiered to face 10.0 BR MBTs. With this advantage the CV 90105 TML is able to take early-game defensive positions, reach sniping locations, and quickly relocate around the map if needed.


Another one of this vehicle's strengths is its armament. It's equipped with second generation thermal sights in both gunner and commander/binocular views, which makes enemies very easy to spot and which is incredibly useful in night battes. This tank also has a scouting ability, which can be used to call for support from teammates and locate enemies on the map.

As for this tank's gun, the CV 90105 TML is armed with quite a powerful cannon that easily penetrates MBTs. It has access to both its stock APFSDS round, the DM23, and HESH and HEAT-FS shells. Although the stock shell has higher flat penetration, the DM23 outperforms it in angled penetration, which is the more important metric in most cases at this tier; most enemy armour will be well-angled. Still, it is useful to carry a few rounds of the stock APFSDS shell. The gun has a very good turret traverse speed which helps in situations where quick aiming is required.


The CV 90105 TML's greatest weakness is its poor survivability. It is able to be hullbroken, and is protected by only thin armour on all sides. Due to the internal layout of the tank, ammo detonations and one-shot deaths are very common. Cannon-calibre rounds are able to penetrate the CV 90105 TML's armour, and artillery and aircraft post a serious threat to this tank. The CV 90105 TML has effectively no anti-air capabilities and its thin roof armour makes strafing attacks dangerous.

All of this means that avoiding enemy fire must be a priority. The tank's mobility can be used to flank enemies and attack without their noticing. Indeed, engaging head-on is usually a bad idea, since that makes you a prime target for artillery strikes and attacks from aircraft. If there are enemy aircraft nearby, try to stay near cover (next to buildings, under trees, near bushes or rocks...) and avoid crossing open areas of the map.

Pros and cons


  • Efficient grinder
  • Available APFSDS can penetrate most MBTs with ease
  • Excellent top speed but only slightly above average acceleration
  • Both commander and gunner's thermal sight's
  • Ability to scout
  • Two-plane gun stabilizer


  • Very thin armour, does not have the option to angle or sidescrape
  • Hullbreaks very easily
  • Lack of AA capability makes aircraft even more dangerous



The Swedish company Hägglunds began development 1983 on a combat vehicle capable of anti-tank, and anti-air defense, at the request of the Swedish Army. Due to the nature of the multi-role request, Hägglunds went for a utility vehicle design similar to the ideas of the Swedish Air-Force. Initial trials were done with 5 different chassis to determine optimal engineering solutions to the concept. Although the design was unified, trials showed several issues with the clutch and brake systems. This was solved by reconstructing the system altogether. To accompany this, the chassis was raised 35mm, and tower placement was moved forward. Hägglunds were strictly against this decision but later stated that this adjustment contributed significantly to the great export success of the vehicle.


The 105mm turret is a design by the french GIAT (now known as Nexer Systems). This turret was originally made for the AMX-10RC, which is an armoured car entirely designed by GIAT. The turret was designed to survive heavy machine gun fire up to 14.5mm. The turret sported a 105mm F2 cannon capable of firing modern APFSDS rounds, along with a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun. By the 1990s the turret started to become outdated, which lead to GIAT modernizing the design with electrically powered stabilizers for the main armament and sights. This lead to the version found on the CV 90105 TML, known as the TML 105mm turret.

CV 90105 TML

The CV 90105 TML was unveiled to the public in 1994. The combination of the flexible CV 90 chassis and powerful 105mm G2 cannon proved lethal. This private venture by GIAT and Hägglunds was strategic, as this concept allowed both companies to market themselves towards the export market. The CV 90 chassis was able to prove its flexibility by carrying large-caliber cannons for anti-tank purposes, While the TML 105mm turret got to show its upgraded potential and tracked-vehicle performance, along with flexibility. Although this design never attracted any customers, the concept sparked debate regarding the future of light tanks. Hägglunds went on to successfully export their CV 90 chassis, though only via the IFV role. Most notably with the CV 9030, which featured a 30mm Bushmaster II. Larger cannons were later trialed on the chassis, such as the CV 90120, carrying a 120mm Rheinmetall smoothbore cannon. GIAT went on to market their TML 105mm turret fitted on the MOWAG Piranha, marketed for the middle-east. Although having lesser success than the CV 90 chassis, their AMX-10RC is still in service, proving its reliability as a wheeled fire-support vehicle, boasting a deadly cannon.
