A Sweden defense firm, Saab, has signed a new agreement with the United States for the delivery of AT4 Anti-Tank Weapon Systems and Carl-Gustaf Ammunition. This contract is valued at USD 104.9 million, and deliveries will start in 2024.
Saab said in a press release that The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has expanded a current framework agreement (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ)) with Saab for AT4 systems and Carl-Gustaf ammunition.
“Saab’s shoulder-launched weapons and munitions are unmatched for their effectiveness against a wide range of tactical targets and dramatically improve the survivability of warfighters,” said Erik Smith, President and CEO of Saab in the U.S. “The DoD’s expanded commitment to our close combat solutions validates Saab’s focus on delivering innovative, advanced products that can evolve to meet the long-term needs of our partners. We’re incredibly proud that the U.S. Armed Forces has extended our partnership for close combat systems, which will now exceed four decades and endure for years to come.”
“We are proud that our combat solutions are making a difference for our customers. The expansion of the framework agreement further strengthens our position as a trusted U.S. partner and ensures the armed forces can use AT4CS RS and Carl-Gustaf for years to come,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
