Saab has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for deliveries of the Carl-Gustaf M4 to the Swedish Armed Forces.
The new version, Carl-Gustaf M4, launched in 2014, has lightweight design, weighing less than 7 kg. With this order, five countries have ordered the new system since it was launched in late 2014. Delivery will take place during 2018, the company said in a statement last week.
“We are happy to announce that the Swedish Armed Forces, the first and original user of the Carl-Gustaf system, is the new member of our Carl-Gustaf M4 family. With the choice of this new version the Swedish soldiers will have an increased capability to defeat any threat out there, says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.
“The improved ergonomics of the Carl-Gustaf M4 will make the Swedish soldiers more agile and effective on the battlefield,” Torbjörn Saxmo, head of Saab business unit Ground Combat within Saab business area Dynamics said.
The Carl-Gustaf M4 is the latest version of the portable, shoulder-launched, multi-role weapon system. It gives users a wide range of engagement options and allows troops to remain agile and effective in any scenario.
