Saab has won a $32.4 million contract to deliver Robotsystem (RBS) 70 missiles and additional equipment.
The company announced Monday that deliveries will occur between 2015 and 2016 to a customer whose identity was not disclosed.
The Saab portfolio of short-range ground-based air defence missile systems includes the RBS 70 and the further enhanced RBS 70 NG.
The RBS 70 system has a track-record on the market with more than 1,600 launchers and over 17,000 missiles delivered to 19 countries.
“One of our customers of the RBS 70 system has placed an additional order to achieve added capacity of its forces. This order demonstrates the reliability of the RBS 70 system, as well as the high quality of our manufacturing and support capabilities,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.
"The RBS 70 is a modern system with a long lifespan. An increasing number of customers are discovering its flexible design, which allows for the system to be continuously upgraded,” said Johansson.
The RBS 70 short-range anti-aircraft missile is operational with the Swedish armed forces and has also been exported to 18 countries worldwide. It is a man-portable air-defense system (MANPADS) designed for anti-aircraft warfare in all climate zones with little or no support from other forces.
The company has not released details about the customer.
