Saab announces RBS15 Mk3 order
Saab has announced that it has received an order from its German partner Diehl BGT for the surface-to-surface missile RBS15 Mk3. The order, valued at SEK 168 million, includes options with a total value of SEK 83 million, and was announced 13 August 2012.
Saab called the order important for the continued development of the RBS15 Mk3 system, as well for the company’s long-term strategy to increase sales outside Sweden.
The RBS15 Mk3 is a heavy weight surface-to-surface missile system with a range of more than 200 km. It is Saab’s latest generation surface-to-surface missile system and is designed to be used as a main anti-surface armament asset. It can be launched from naval vessels and trucks, in scenarios from blue water to the littorals, as well as in land attack missions.
The system has previously been sold to Germany, Poland and Sweden. Saab expects deliveries to take place during the period 2014 to 2016.
