Important new capabilities developed by Saab for its AT4 weapon system will also be exhibited for the first time at DSEI.
These enhanced variants deliver extended range (ER) performance and improved high explosive (HE) effects. With an AT4, any soldier can now defeat more targets with greater flexibility and in many more scenarios.
The latest AT4 versions were launched into production with a December 2014 order from the French Ministry of Defence procurement branch, the DGA (Direction Générale de l'Armement).
The enhanced AT4 was selected by France after an international competitive evaluation. It will serve as the Roquette Nouvelle Generation (Roquette NG) next-generation shoulder-launched weapon system for the French armed forces.
“These new members of our AT4 family further expand the great versatility of the weapon and emphasise its position as the leading disposable shoulder-launched support weapon on the market,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab Business Area Dynamics.
The Carl-Gustaf M4 is the next evolutionary step in the development of Saab’s multi-role, portable weapon systems. It can be deployed in any combat environment to effectively dictate the outcome of each engagement, a Saab statement said.
