SEK145 Million Order for Completion by 2023
The Swedish Defence Material Organisation (FMV) has authorised Saab to commence the next phase of the life extension programme (LEP) for Torpedo 62. The order value is SEK145 million (€14.2 million) and deliveries will be complete by the end of 2023.
The order includes pre-studies and engineering, which incorporate subsystem prototypes for improvements of the current torpedo. “This order helps to develop a more capable torpedo system for the future,” explained Görgen Johansson, head of the Saab Dynamics business area.
The LEP for the Swedish Navy’s heavyweight torpedo was first signed in 2020. Torpedo 62 is a heavyweight torpedo system for surface and underwater targets, and is equipped with an advanced propulsion system with high capacity and long endurance, combined with an advanced target seeker, developed specifically with the Swedish Navy’s operational area in mind.
