Saab to provide more Erieye AEW&C aircraft
Saab announced on 18 May that it has received an order from an unnamed customer for its Saab 2000 Erieye AEW&C solution, under a SEK1.55 billion ($158.37 million) contract.
An undisclosed number of aircraft will be delivered between 2020 and 2023.
Saab will carry out the work in Sweden at sites in Arboga, Gothenburg, Järfälla, Linköping and Luleå.
The AEW&C system comprises the Saab 2000 aircraft equipped with the Swedish company’s Erieye airborne radar and a range of other sensors.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, launch customer Pakistan took delivery of four aircraft between 2009 and 2010. Three of these were damaged in a 2012 terrorist attack, including one which was written off. The two remaining aircraft were repaired locally and returned to service.
Pakistan ordered three more Saab 2000 Erieyes in 2017 for $152 million. The final aircraft in this order was delivered to the Pakistan Air Force in April 2019.
