Sweden signs framework agreement for Carl-Gustaf M4
Saab has signed a framework agreement with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to provide the Swedish armed forces with the Carl-Gustaf M4 shoulder-launched weapon.
This agreement will allow FMV to place orders during a ten-year period, and an initial order worth some SEK330 million has been placed with deliveries due to be carried out during 2020-2023.
The new version of the weapon, Carl-Gustaf M4 was launched in 2014, and has an improved and lightweight design weighing less than 7kg, which offers mobility improvements.
In 2018, FMV placed the first order for Sweden, and the framework agreement recently signed is the beginning of larger investments in the system, which will eventually lead to the entire Swedish armed forces being equipped with the Carl-Gustaf M4 weapon.
In addition, the Estonian and Latvian armed forces are also allowed to purchase under this framework agreement.
