“We are ready to supply Denmark with Carl-Gustaf M4. The user-focused design of the Carl-Gustaf M4 will ensure the Danish forces that they will have what they need when they need it,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics. The Danish Armed Forces have been using Carl-Gustaf, which is designated Dysekanon in the country, since the 1970s.

Since the Carl-Gustaf M4 launch in 2014, Saab has signed contracts with fourteen different nations for the system. The wide range of ammunition provides extreme tactical flexibility, ready for any combat situation, delivering faster engagement, increased hit probability, and greater effectiveness.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 (CGM4), also called M3E1 in the U.S. Army, is the latest generation of multi-role anti-tank weapon systems in the family of Carl-Gustaf developed and manufactured by the Swedish company Saab. The key characteristic of the Carl-Gustaf M4 is to offer a multi-role weapon for modern infantry.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 system is able to fire a wide range of 84mm caliber ammunition including anti-armor, anti-structure, multi-role, anti-personnel, and support rounds. The ammunition used with the Carl Gustaf M4 has an effective range of up to 400 m against tanks and 700 m against buildings and stationary targets. Some types of ammunition have a rocket booster to extend the range to up to 1,000 m.
