The Estonian Centre for Defence Investment has placed a new order with Saab for the delivery of ammunition for a Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon system.

With a total value of Skr186m ($20.88m), the new order is placed under a Framework Agreement, which was concluded between Estonia and the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV).

The agreement forms the basis for possible procurement of weaponry, equipment and ammunition.

Saab Dynamics Business Area senior vice-president and head Görgen Johansson said: “This is a further proof of the trust our customer put in the Carl-Gustaf system and the capability it creates for the defence forces.”

Deliveries of the Carl-Gustaf ammunition will be carried out by the company between this year and 2019.

“This is a further proof of the trust our customer put in the Carl-Gustaf system and the capability it creates for the defence forces.”

The Carl-Gustaf M4 rifle is the latest version of the combat-proven, shoulder-launched, multi-role weapon system currently being used by a number of armed forces across the globe.

The weapon provides the users with a wide range of engagement options while enabling troops to remain agile and effective in any scenario.

Built on the system’s existing capabilities, the M4 variant offers a higher degree of accuracy, lighter construction and compatibility with future developments.

The rifle can be used by the soldiers to combat any tactical situation, ranging from neutralising armoured tanks or enemy troops in defilade, to clearing obstacles and engaging enemies in buildings.

In June this year, the US Department of Defense (DoD) placed a new $16m ammunition delivery order for Saab’s 84mm recoilless Carl-Gustaf rifle system, with deliveries expected to take place next year.
