Saab and Swedish FMV to provide Carl-Gustaf M4 to Swedish Army


Saab has signed a framework agreement with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to provide the Swedish Armed Forces with Carl-GustafM4. The framework agreement will allow FMV to place orders during a ten-year period. An initial order for Carl-Gustaf M4 weapons, of approximately MSEK 330, has been placed with deliveries taking place during 2020-2023.

Since 1948, the Carl-Gustaf multi-purpose weapon system has been supporting dismounted infantry around the world in dealing with a full range of battlefield challenges. The new version, Carl-Gustaf M4, launched in 2014, has all the effectiveness and versatility of the Carl-Gustaf system but its improved and lightweight design, weighing less than 7 kg, offers significant mobility improvements to the soldier.

In 2018, FMV placed the first order to provide the Swedish Armed Forces with the latest version of the Carl-Gustaf system. The framework agreement recently signed is the beginning of larger investments in the system, to eventually have the entire Swedish Armed Forces equipped with the Carl-Gustaf M4 weapon along with upgrades for ammunition and accessories.
