Saab Receives First Order For Carl-Gustaf M4



Defence and security company Saab has received the first order for the new Carl-Gustaf M4 system from the armed forces of the Slovak Republic. Deliveries are expected to take place during 2016.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 made its market debut in late 2014. It has all the effectiveness and versatility of the proven Carl-Gustaf system but its improved, lightweight design (weighing only about 7 kg) offers significant mobility improvements to the soldier.

The M4 also compatible with future battlefield technology developments such as intelligent sighting systems and programmable ammunition. Now Slovakia has become the launch customer for the next-generation M4 system. In addition, the
Carl-Gustaf M4 system have been acquired by two other undisclosed countries for evaluation/qualification purposes.

“This is a great milestone for Saab and the Carl-Gustaf system. I am very proud to announce that Slovakia is the first country to implement the Carl-Gustaf M4 in its armed forces. For Saab and for business area Dynamics this is further proof of our ability to offer world-leading solutions to our customers,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

“Slovakia now has a system that will further increase its defence capabilities. Since the launch of the system we have seen a tremendous interest in the market and we look forward to taking further orders from more countries,” says Magnus Lewis-Olsson, head of Saab Market Area Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Saab’s Carl-Gustaf system has a long and distinguished service history all around the world. It has been successively modernised and enhanced to meet the changing requirements of its users.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 is the latest version of the portable, shoulder-launched, multi-role weapon system. It gives users a wide range of engagement options and allows troops to remain agile and effective in any scenario. It builds on the system’s formidable capabilities, offering a higher degree of accuracy, lighter construction and compatibility with future innovations.
