Saab has received an order valued approximately $75 million for Carl-Gustaf ammunition from the U.S. Army.
The deliveries will take place in 2022.
The shoulder-fired ammunition order is placed within an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) framework agreement signed in 2019 between Saab and the U.S. Army that allows the customer to place orders for Carl-Gustaf ammunition and the disposable AT4 shoulder-fired weapon systems during a five-year period. This order for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps is comprised of seven different types of ammunition including anti-armor, anti-structure, smoke, and illumination rounds, all underlining the versatility of the multi-purpose Carl-Gustaf system.
Saab’s Carl-Gustaf (designated MAAWS in the U.S.) reloadable multi-purpose system has been in service in the U.S. since 1990, a program of record for the U.S. Army since 2013, and in 2018, the U.S. Army announced it will acquire the latest version of the weapon – the Carl-Gustaf M4 (designated M3E1 in the U.S.).
The order was booked during the second quarter 2021.
