Saab receives order from Germany for anti-ship missiles
Saab is to provide its RBS15 anti-ship missile for the German Navy, under a SEK1.7 billion ($194.39 million) order from Diehl Defence.
Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2022 and finish in 2026.
The RBS15 missiles and launcher systems will be installed on Braunschweig-class corvettes.
In addition to RBS15 systems, the order also includes associated equipment and services. The German Navy has used RBS15 since 2011.
