Brazil Army orders RBS 70 NG
Saab will deliver RBS 70 NG systems to the Brazilian Army under an order announced on 14 January.
Along with the RBS 70 NG the order also includes training systems, camouflage systems and other associated equipment.
The Brazilian Army has operated the RBS 70 since 2014. This order for the latest NG version of the man-portable air defence system will enhance the force’s air defence capabilities.
The RBS 70 NG offers a day/night capability, laser guidance and an automatic target tracker that ensures the missile hits its target.
Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area dynamics, said: ‘We welcome the Brazilian Army as our latest customer for the RBS 70 NG. We see their decision to continue to select us as clear proof of their confidence in Saab’s state of the art air defence solution.’
