Saab has been awarded a contract from an unnamed customer for the anti-tank weapon system NLAW.
The NLAW (Next generation Light Anti-tank Weapon) system combines the simplicity of light anti-armour weapons with the advantages of heavy, crew-operated guided missile systems. NLAW is a shoulder-launched, anti-tank missile system that attacks the tank from above.
With NLAW, a single soldier can destroy a heavily protected modern Main Battle Tank (MBT) with one shot. The soldier can within and beyond the normal dismounted combat range, immediately upon target detection, regardless of attitude, without having to mount the system, load the weapon and complete a lock-on before launch.
“There is an increased interest and demand for lightweight anti-tank weapons on the market and this order is a strong proof of our customers trust in the NLAW system” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.
“In many countries, there has been a large focus the last decade on building up the capability to fight a war on terror, but we now see that many countries again also realize that the capability to fight a modern mechanized enemy, on an individual soldier level, is becoming more and more important. A system like NLAW provides that capability”, says Görgen Johansson.
Deliveries will take place during 2016 and 2017.
