Saab has received an order from the Swiss Federal Office for Defence Procurement, armasuisse, for deliveries of the Next generation Light Anti-Tank Weapon system (NLAW) to the Swiss Army.
The order value amounts to BSEK 1.035 with deliveries during the period 2018-2021, the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The order includes the supply of NLAW weapon systems, associated training equipment, such as drill rounds, indoor training simulators, and support and maintenance of the training equipment. Under a framework contract between Saab and armasuisse, orders can be placed for NLAW weapon systems and equipment during the period 2017-2030.
NLAW is a shoulder-launched, anti-tank missile system that attacks the tank from above. The NLAW system combines the simplicity of light anti-armour weapons with the advantages of heavy, crew-operated guided missile systems. With NLAW, a single soldier can destroy a heavily protected modern Main Battle Tank with only one shot at a range from 20 to 800 metres.
