The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has placed an order for the delivery of Saab’s new and advanced Carl-Gustaf M4 weapon system.

Under the order, Saab will be responsible for carrying out the delivery of the latest version of the Carl-Gustaf weapon system to the Swedish Armed Forces this year.

Saab Dynamics Business Area head Görgen Johansson said: “We are happy to announce that the Swedish Armed Forces, the first and original user of the Carl-Gustaf system, is the new member of our Carl-Gustaf M4 family.

“With the choice of this new version the Swedish soldiers will have an increased capability to defeat any threat out there.”

"Featuring an improved and lightweight design, and weighing less than 7kg, the new version of the multi-purpose weapon system provides the armed forces with significant mobility enhancements."

Carl-Gustaf M4 is the latest version of the portable, shoulder-launched, multi-role weapon system that provides the customers with a wide range of engagement options.

Launched in 2014, Carl-Gustaf M4 features all the effectiveness and versatility of the traditional Carl-Gustaf system.

Featuring an improved and lightweight design, and weighing less than 7kg, the new version of the multi-purpose weapon system provides the armed forces with significant mobility enhancements.

Since 1948, Saab’s Carl-Gustaf weapon system has been deployed in support of dismounted infantry across the globe to help manage an entire range of battlefield challenges.

Saab Dynamics Business Area Ground Combat business unit head Torbjörn Saxmo said: “The improved ergonomics of the Carl-Gustaf M4 will make the Swedish soldiers more agile and effective on the battlefield.

“We are looking forward to helping the Swedish Armed Forces strengthen their operational capability.”

With the current order from Sweden, the company has signed five contracts with five different countries since the launch of the new system.
