Saab Bofors Dynamics Switzerland Ltd. (SBDS), which is part of Saab business area Dynamics, will manufacture and deliver the mortar rounds. The order includes the high explosive grenade WG, as well as the explosive grenade EUG and potentially the newest product from SBDS which is the THOR - the latest version of pre fragmented mortar grenades. “We warmly welcome this selection of our mortar ammunition. The requirement was exacting as regards its operational and training demands. Our selection is indicative of our leadership as a designer and manufacture of high-quality mortar ammunition,” says Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab Business Area Dynamics. The industry’s nature is such that due to circumstances concerning the product and customer, further information about the customer will not be announced, Saab warned.
