Order Valued at €16.4 Million to Saab
Saab has received an order from the Latvian Ministry of Defence for ammunition for the CARL-GUSTAF shoulder-borne infantry weapon. The total order value is SEK 170 million (€16.4 million).
The order is placed under a framework agreement signed with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV), in which Latvia has the opportunity to place orders for grenade ammunition from Saab. The Latvian armed forces have been users of the CARL-GUSTAF weapon system for over 20 years.
The system has a long and distinguished service history around the world, including in the Nordic and Baltic regions. Employing a wide range of ammunition types, the CARL-GUSTAF allows dismounted soldiers to take on multiple challenges – from neutralising armoured vehicles to clearing obstacles and defeating enemies in buildings. Sold to more than 40 countries, the CARL-GUSTAF is continually being further developed, with new ammunition types and enhanced capabilities.
“This order demonstrates the continued strong belief in our weapon systems and is a clear proof of the trust we have with the customer and the capability it creates for the armed forces of Latvia,” commented the Head of Saab’s Dynamics business area, Görgen Johansson.
