Saab to deliver Carl-Gustaf M4 to Slovenia
Saab has received an order to deliver its Carl-Gustaf M4 multi-role weapon system to the Slovenian armed forces, the company announced on 22 November.
The Carl-Gustaf M4 is the latest version of the portable, shoulder-launched, multi-role weapon system. The new version’s major enhancements over the previous systems includes a lighter weight design (less than 7kg), a round counter, improved safety and intelligent features, such as compatibility with future intelligent sighting systems and programmable ammunition.
Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics, said: ‘The Slovenian order is further proof that Carl-Gustaf M4 is the number one multi-role weapon on the market. We are happy to introduce the Slovenian armed forces to Saab’s Carl-Gustaf M4 with outperforming capabilities and high tactical flexibility, and we feel confident that the end user will be satisfied.’
Deliveries of the system will take place during 2018-2020.
