FMV Contracts Saab to Produce Next Generation Anti-Ship Missile

Deliveries to Commence 2020 FMV has contracted Saab to produce the Swedish Armed Forces’ next generation anti-ship missile. The total order value amounts to SEK500 million (US$57 million) and calls for additional missiles to those ordered under the previously announced development and production contract in March. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2020.

The missile is based on the proven RBS15 produced by Saab and Diehl Defence. To be carried by the GRIPEN aircraft and the VISBY-class corvette, it has an improved combat range, an upgraded missile seeker and a lower mass compared to the earlier system. It also has an ability to combat a wide spectrum of naval and land-based targets, an all-weather capability and a new design enabling future growth potential.

“With these missiles the Swedish Armed Forces will have an outstanding capability to defeat any target, on both land and sea at long distances. The system also allows them to engage targets regardless of weather conditions and enemy countermeasures”, Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab business area Dynamics, commented.
