US Army orders Carl-Gustaf ammunition and AT4 systems
The order was placed within an indefinite-delivery and quantity agreement signed in 2019, enabling the army to request Carl-Gustaf ammunition and AT4 systems during a five-year period to a value of up to $445 million.
The AT4 systems and Carl-Gustaf munitions will be operated by the US Army, Marine Corps and Special Forces Command according to Saab.
Since 1987, Saab has delivered more than 600,000 AT4s to the US Armed Forces. In 2018, the army acquired the latest version of the system, the Carl-Gustaf M4 (designated M3E1 in the US).
