The Civic Democratic Party of the Republic made the announcement last night that they would make the historic negotiations for the American made F-35 and Swedish CV-90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles in order to bolster its own military and meet NATO requirements for collective defense.
The Czech Republic cancelled a 2.1B USD deal with BAE for a tracked IFV and decided to purchase the Swedish vehicle for an unnamed price.
