The Saab portfolio of short-range ground-based air defence missile systems includes the RBS 70 and the further enhanced RBS 70 NG. The RBS 70 system has an impressive track-record on the market with more than 1,600 launchers and over 17,000 missiles delivered to 19 countries.

“One of our customers of the RBS 70 system has placed an additional order to achieve added capacity of its forces. This order demonstrates the reliability of the RBS 70 system, as well as the high quality of our manufacturing and support capabilities,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

"The RBS 70 is a modern system with a long lifespan. An increasing number of customers are discovering its flexible design, which allows for the system to be continuously upgraded,” says Görgen Johansson.

The details of this contract are covered by a confidentiality agreement between Saab and the customer. No further information concerning this order will be released.

The RBS 70 is a man-portable air-defense missile system (MANPADS) designed for air defense warfare in all climate zones and with little to no support from other forces. The RBS 70 is designed and manufactured by the Swedish defence Company SAAB. The RBS 70 was developed to supply the Swedish air defense with a low-cost, easy-to-use and effective short-range SAM system.

The RBS 70 NG was presented for the first time to the public during the DSEI defense exhibition in September 2011, London, United Kingdom. Now with integrated 24/7 all-target capability Saab's new RBS 70 NG VSHORAD system has been developed for any combat situation. Its integrated sighting solution, enhanced missile operator aids, unmatched range and unjammable laser guidance combine to produce a system with world-leading capabilities.
