Saab logs new ammunition order
Saab has received an order for Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon system ammunition from an unnamed customer.
Deliveries under the order will run through 2019-2020.
Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics, said: ‘The Carl-Gustaf system has proven itself to be a reliable and robust weapon, not least from orders like these. The wide range of ammunition types makes the Carl-Gustaf a true multi-purpose solution for infantry units around the world.’
The Carl-Gustaf system works with a range of ammunition types, enabling dismounted soldiers to neutralise armoured vehicles, clear obstacles and defeat enemies in buildings.
