Saab has announced that it has signed a new contract for further deliveries of components for its Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon system. The contract, with an unnamed customer, has a total value of MSEK133.

The order comprises production and delivery of components to M3, the latest version of the Carl-Gustaf system. The multi-role, man-portable shoulder-fired ground support weapon offers the soldier various types of ammunition, ranging from armour penetration and anti-personnel, to ammunition for built-up areas as well as special features like smoke and illumination. The system has been modernised to meet new requirements, with the M3 version of the launcher features significant weight reduction and improvements for urban operations.

According to the company, deliveries are scheduled to take place during 2013 and 2014.
