Saab has signed a multi-year framework agreement with the US Government, which allows the US Army, Marines and Special Forces to place orders for up to USD 445 million during a five-year period for Carl Gustaf ammunition and AT4 weapon system.
The recently signed framework agreement allows the customer to place orders for Saab’s AT4 disposable weapon system and ammunition for the Carl-Gustaf recoilless rifle. A first purchase order of USD 83 million (approximately SEK 771 million) was released at the signing of the agreement.
“This framework agreement further strengthens our relationship with the U.S. Armed Forces, who have been users of our ground combat systems for decades. We see these continued investments as a clear proof that the customer values the flexibility and effectiveness of our systems,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.
Since 1987, Saab has delivered more than 600,000 AT4s, both directly and under license, to US forces. The Carl-Gustaf system has been a program of record in the US since 2013 and in 2018 it was announced that US Army will acquire the latest version of the system – the Carl-Gustaf M4 (designated M3E1 in the US).
Hakan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab aerospace and defence company, will be stepping down from the position and will be leaving the firm by February 2020. Hakan Buskhe assumed the role of President and CEO of Saab on September 1, 2010
