Saab and the US government have signed an ammunition framework agreement worth up to $445 million over five years, the company announced on 10 July.

The agreement allows the US Army, US Marines and US Special Forces to place orders for the AT4 disposable weapon system and ammunition for the Carl-Gustaf recoilless rifle during the contract period.

A first purchase order of $83 million was placed at the signing of the agreement.

Saab’s AT4  has been in use with US forces since the 1980s. The Carl-Gustaf (designated MAAWS in the US) system has been a program of record in the US since 2013, and as of 2018 the US Army is acquiring the latest version of the system, the Carl-Gustaf M4 (designated M3E1).
