Saab has unveiled its RBS15 Gungnir next generation anti-ship missile system at the Farnborough International Airshow 2018 for the first time.

The new system has autonomous all-weather capability of the RBS15 missile. “RBS15 Gungnir is offered in both air-launched and surface-launched configurations. With a range to more than 300 km and advanced target seeker, it gives the capability to engage any target, in all conditions,” said Görgen Johansson, Senior Vice President and head of Saab business area Dynamics in a statement Monday. 

The RBS15 Gungnir integrates with pre-existing RBS15 infrastructure and is backwards compatible.

The next generation version of the RBS15 development and production programme was first contracted in March 2017 with the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV). This next generation of RBS15 systems is named Gungnir. That March 2017 contract amounted to SEK 3.2 billion with deliveries to take place during the period 2017-2026.

Additional production of missiles was contracted with FMV in April 2017 for MSEK 500, with deliveries to begin in the mid-2020s.

The RBS15 missile family is jointly produced by Saab and Diehl Defence.
