Saab, MESKO sign Polish support agreement
Saab has signed a teaming agreement with Poland's MESKO for the maintenance and support of the Polish Navy’s RBS15 Mk3 surface-to-surface missile system, Saab announced on 6 October.
The RBS15 Mk3 missile system - in service on-board the Polish Navy’s Orkan-class fast attack craft - is a long-range system that can serve as the main anti-surface armament for various vessel types. It features an advanced pre-launch programmable active radar seeker for fire-and-forget operability.
Under the agreement with MESKO a maintenance and support centre for RBS15 missiles will be established in Skarżysko-Kamienna, Poland.
