Saab has signed a contract worth SEK 1.4 billion ($164 million) for the production and delivery of ammunition for the Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon system.

The contract comprises production and delivery of three different types of ammunition for the Carl-Gustaf system and also includes possibilities for additional orders. Deliveries are expected to take place during 2016-2019.

“I am very glad to announce that we have now received this significant order for Carl-Gustaf ammunition. This further strengthens our leading position on the market for shoulder-launched weapons systems,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

The information about the customer will not be announced.

The Carl-Gustaf is a world-leading weapon system within the support weapon category. The latest version, the Carl-Gustaf M4, reduces the weight from 10 kg to 7 kg. Carl-Gustaf is a battle-winning system for soldiers operating in demanding environments. Employing a wide range of ammunition types, the Carl-Gustaf system allows dismounted soldiers to defeat multiple challenges – from neutralising armoured vehicles to clearing obstacles and engaging enemies in buildings.
