18th September 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


BAE Systems has contracted Slovakia-based Konstrukta-Defence to produce barrels for the Swedish Army’s Mjölner mortar system.

Konstrukta will manufacture 84 120mm barrels to be modified to meet the requirements for the Mjölner system, which is being integrated onto Swedish Army CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles.

Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, VP and GM of BAE Systems Hägglunds, said: ‘BAE Systems has a proven track record of partnering with local companies to not only meet the short-term needs of our customers, but to establish long-term, lasting relationships that develop new opportunities for growth and investment.’

Deliveries of the barrels will begin in December 2017 and will continue through July 2020. The steel for the barrels will be supplied by Slovakia-based manufacturer ZTS Metalurg.
