Saab Training & Simulation will supply combat training systems to the Finnish Defence Force under a new order announced on 10 March worth approximately MSEK 360 million. The agreement includes a seven year support period starting in 2014.

Under the contract, Saab will supply regiments of the Finnish Army with anti-tank simulators, vehicles simulators and systems for Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT), including the new laser standard OSAG 2.

The contract also includes mid life upgrade of the Finnish combat training centre, KASI system. The new regimental system and the KASI system will be used together in battalion exercises.

Henrik Höjer, vice president Training & Simulation, Saab, said: ‘The Finnish Defence Force has once again chosen Saab as its partner. The Finnish Army [has used] Saab’s systems [for] more than ten years and has always been a competent user. This order strengthens our position as one of the world’s leading suppliers of combat training centres.’

Saab’s Combat Training Systems are also used for military training by the armed forces of the US, the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, and Italy.
