Australian Army orders Carl-Gustaf ammo
Saab has received an $18.14 million order to supply Carl-Gustaf ammunition to the Australian Army, the company announced on 11 April.
The Australian Army placed an order for the Carl-Gustaf M4 multi-role weapon system in September 2018.
The Carl-Gustaf M4 is a man-portable, shoulder-launched, weapon system. The major enhancements over previous versions include a lightweight design, weighing less than 7kg, a fired-round counter, and improved safety and intelligent features, such as compatibility with future intelligent sighting systems and programmable ammunition.
Deliveries are expected to take place in 2020.
