Saab has signed framework agreements with NATO for the supply of various ground combat solutions worth 350 million Swedish krona ($33.7 million).
As part of the deal, the Swedish defense firm will deliver Carl-Gustaf M4 recoilless rifles and AT4 anti-armor weapon systems.
It also covers the supply of combat vehicles and associated sustainment services to various NATO nations.
According to Saab, the ground combat systems will provide the military alliance with the necessary effectiveness and precision on the battlefield.
They would also allow soldiers to carry out difficult missions in a safer way.
“We are proud that our combat solutions are making a difference for our customers,” company official Görgen Johansson said. “These framework agreements will further strengthen our relations with NATO and facilitate the order process for Carl-Gustaf and AT4 for its members.”
The Carl-Gustaf and AT4 Systems
Saab’s Carl-Gustaf M4 recoilless rifle is a man-portable weapon system that enables operators to deal with multiple challenges on the modern battlefield.
It is designed to give military units a tactical advantage by effectively neutralizing armored tanks, engaging enemies in buildings, and clearing obstacles.
Meanwhile, the AT4 is a lightweight, single-shot weapon that provides soldiers with anti-armor, anti-structure, and anti-personnel capabilities.
Its warhead creates high penetration against enemy assets, while also providing a devastating behind-armor effect.
Deliveries of the Carl-Gustaf will be carried out between 2023 and 2025, while the AT4 weapons will be handed over by 2024.
