This enables the soldier to defeat enemy targets with much greater flexibility and in many more scenarios. The update further confirms Saab’s leading position as a supplier of modern ground combat weapon systems.
Building on the modularity of the 84-mm calibre system applied to both the AT4 and Carl-Gustaf weapons, the new capabilities allow a soldier to engage and defeat more types of enemy targets, over longer distances and in more complex environments.

The AT4CS ER takes the well-proven anti-armour capability of the AT4CS (Confined Space) and extends its effective range to 600 m. The AT4CS HE will provide the soldier with a direct-fire support capability capable of engaging enemy troops in air-burst or impact mode out to a distance of 1,000 m.

“The new members of our AT4 family further expand the great versatility of the weapon and emphasise its position as the leading disposable shoulder-launched support weapon on the market,” says Andreas Andersson, Product Director, Ground Combat, Dynamics.

Present in more than 15 countries worldwide, the AT4 system is fully combat-proven. It provides the extended range required for mission success, along with night and confined space launch capabilities. Expert gunners are not required to operate the weapon effectively. All AT4s are single-shot and fully disposable. Key charateristics include high target effect and hit propability – resulting in the maximum kill probability for each weapon fired.
