Brazilian Army Enhances RBS 70 Inventory

Simulators, Camouflage and Vision Systems Add Capability

The Brazilian Army has awarded Saab a contract for delivery of additional man-portable launchers for the RBS 70 very short range air defence (VSHORAD) system, plus night vision equipment, training simulators, multispectral camouflage and associated equipment for operators and maintainers. The contract has a value of SEK 105 million (U$11.6 million) and delivery is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.

RBS 70 is already in Brazilian Army service, which gained valuable experience with it during the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. To date, 19 countries have procured more than 1,600 RBS 70 systems, including more than 18,000 missiles.

“With this order the Brazilian Army continue to improve their air defence capability. The system played a very important role in the protection of the 2016 Olympic Games where it not only protected the games, but also strategic infrastructure. We know that the capabilities and reliability of the system are highly appreciated by the customer,” says Stefan Öberg, head of business unit Missile Systems within Saab business area Dynamics.
