Saab will unveil the surface launch version of RBS15 Gungnir anti-ship missile system at the Euronaval exhibition in Paris next week.
The surface launch version of RBS15 Gungnir uses the all new RBS15 Mk4 Surface missile. This provides greater range, enhanced defence penetration and electronic protection as well as a more advanced target seeker, allowing it to engage any target, in all conditions.
The RBS15 Mk4 Surface missile is used in both the sea system and the land system of RBS15 Gungnir. It is designed to provide commonality through easy integration on both land- and sea-based platforms of almost any size. The system is fully backwards compatible, so an investment in Mk3 today opens a smooth path to transition into Gungnir tomorrow.
“The surface launch version can be integrated with existing command networks and on a wide range of the ships available on the market today”, says Görgen Johansson, Senior Vice President and head of Saab business area Dynamics.
The development and production programme, valued at 3.7 BSEK, was contracted in March 2017 with the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV). This next generation of the RBS15 system is named RBS15 Gungnir by Saab and is now being offered to the market as a complete missile system solution for air, sea and land based platforms.
The RBS15 missile family is jointly produced by Saab and Diehl Defence GmbH & Co. KG and serves with various navies, coastal batteries and air forces from Sweden, Finland, Germany, Poland, Croatia and Thailand.
Saab has received $18 million order from its German partner Diehl Defence for the Anti-Ship Missile RBS15 Mk3 ship system. The order has other priced options related to Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) and IT Security
