Building on the success of the proven RBS 70 system, Saab's all-new RBS 70 NG VSHORAD system with integrated 24/7 all-target capability has been developed for the most demanding air defence combat situations. Its integrated sighting solution, enhanced missile operator aids, unbeatable range and unjammable laser guidance combine to produce a system with world-leading capabilities.

The RBS 70 NG has an effective intercept range of 8km, with altitude coverage in excess of 5,000 m, making it a best-in-class air defence missile system. It is capable of operating in complex environments such as urban terrain and is well equipped for all environments, including tropical, desert and arctic conditions.
The modular RBS 70 NG can be vehicle and ship integrated and also used to support manoeuvring troops. The modularity of the system also allows it to be used in a remotely controlled configuration. Specifically aimed at the long-term static air defence of strategic assets, these deployments can last several weeks or more in around-the-clock operations. The RBS 70 NG is also the optimal solution for event protection in peacetime, at high-profile sporting events, for example.
Successful live firings
The pre-launch market introduction of the RBS 70 NG was done during a recent live firing demonstration to 17 potential customer nations in Sweden. The live demonstration was a total success with five perfect hits out of five firings against aerial as well as stationary targets in day and night time firings. BOLIDE missiles were used for the first two shots and an Mk2 missile for the last three shots. The BOLIDE'S fragmentation warhead penetrated among others an armoured steel target. In addition to the firings target tracking against a modern fighter aircraft was performed.
