The NSPA has placed a call-off order for Carl-Gustaf ammunition with deliveries planned 2023-2025 as well as a call-off order for AT4 with deliveries planned 2023-2024. The AT4 framework agreement will be valid until 2026, whilst the Carl-Gustaf agreement, which includes ammunition, will be valid until 2027.

“We are proud that our combat solutions are making a difference for our customers. These framework agreements will further strengthen our relations with NATO and facilitate the order process for Carl-Gustaf and AT4 for its members,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.

Saab’s ground combat systems provide defence forces with the necessary effectiveness and precision to give them the advantage in combat, whilst enabling soldiers to carry out their missions safely. Several NATO members, including the U.S., Canada and the UK, are already users of Saab’s ground combat solutions.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 is a shoulder-fired recoilless rifle designed for use against armored vehicles and fortifications. It is the latest version of the Carl-Gustaf system, which has been in use since the 1940s. The M4 features several improvements over earlier versions, including reduced weight, improved ergonomics, and a modular design that allows for easier maintenance and customization. It is capable of firing a range of different ammunition types, including armor-piercing and high-explosive rounds.

The AT4, on the other hand, is a lightweight, disposable rocket launcher designed for use against armored vehicles and other hardened targets. It is a one-shot weapon that is pre-loaded with a high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead. The AT4 is designed to be simple to use and can be operated by a single person with minimal training. It has a range of up to 500 meters and can penetrate up to 500mm of armor.
