Estonia orders Saab’s BT46 systems

17th August 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has signed a contract for the delivery of BT46 training systems to the Estonian Army, the company announced on 15 August. The deliveries will be made in 2018.

Under the contract, Saab will deliver BT46 laser training systems for the CV9035, Carl-Gustaf and several infantry simulators up to company level. For control and monitoring of exercises, the company’s new Manpack 300 will be used.

The BT46 system is a modern simulator system for gunnery training with various weapons and for realistic, tactical combat exercises in the field. The system is used to simulate direct fire weapons; when the operator engages a target, the BT46 fires a laser beam that is ballistically matched to the real weapon.

The simulators are an additional order for the Estonian armed forces, and will be used by the mechanised brigade, at the regiments and at the infantry school.

Saab will also provide support for five years under the contract.
