Saab to maintain Polish RBS15 missiles
Saab will provide maintenance and logistic support of the Polish Navy's RBS15 Mk3 surface-to-surface missile system under an order announced on 19 April.
The order, from the Naval Port Gdynia, Poland, covers the period 2017-2018.
The Polish Navy has deployed the RBS15 Mk3 on its Orkan class fast attack craft since 2006. Saab will undertake scheduled maintenance of the missile system and additional ILS in the form of training and additional tool sets.
The RBS15 Mk3 is a long-range anti-surface armament weapon for any type of naval vessel. It is designed to operate in a diverse range of scenarios, from anti-ship engagement in blue to littoral waters as well as land attack missions. The missile allows for fire-and-forget operability in all weather conditions, with advanced pre-launch programmable active radar seeker.
