Saab has received an order from an undisclosed customer for its new AT4 CS ER (Confined Space Extended Range) and the AT4 CS HP (Confined Space High Penetration) weapon systems.
The new AT4 CS ER takes the well-proven anti-armour capability of the AT4 family and extends the effective range to 600 m.
“We have seen a great interest for our new family of AT4 weapons and this order is a strong proof of the trust our customers place in us as a supplier of world-leading weapon systems. The AT4CS ER and AT4 CS HP will give the user a modern capability to handle the threats facing them on the battlefield today and tomorrow”, says Torbjörn Saxmo, head of Saab business unit Ground Combat.
Deliveries will take place during 2018.
The AT4 family is a range of lightweight, man-portable, fully disposable weapons characterised by ease of use and handling. This means they do not require expert gunners to operate the weapon effectively. The AT4 offers great flexibility and is not limited to combating tanks and heavy combat vehicles. The AT4 is equally effective against threats in buildings and fortifications. It can also be employed to protect fixed installations, supply points and other vital assets.
