Lithuania orders RBS 70 equipment
Saab has received two orders from the Lithuanian Ministry of Defence for improved missiles and BORC night-capable sights for the RBS 70 system, the company announced on 24 August.
The order value amounts to approximately $10.94 million and deliveries will start in 2019.
The new systems will give the Lithuanian armed forces' RBS 70 short-range ground-based air defence missile system greater range, higher altitude coverage and an enhanced effect against armoured targets as well as night time capability.
