Saab to deliver more Carl-Gustaf M3E1 to US from 2021
Saab is to supply more units of its Carl-Gustaf M4 shoulder-fired 84mm recoilless weapon system to the US Army, under a new $87 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract announced on 15 October.
The framework agreement includes an initial order worth $9.2 million, with deliveries to begin in 2021.
The weapons, known as M3E1 in US service, will be operated by the US Army, USMC and Special Operations Command.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, the Carl-Gustaf M4 has been exported to six countries. In 2018, the US Army announced it was acquiring the M4 variant. Weighing 6.7kg, it is 28% lighter than the M3.
In 2019, the US Army signed a framework agreement for Carl-Gustaf ammunition.
