Saab has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for deliveries of the Carl-Gustaf® M4, the latest version of the Carl-Gustaf weapon system, to the Swedish Armed Forces.
“The improved ergonomics of the Carl-Gustaf M4 will make the Swedish soldiers more agile and effective on the battlefield,” Torbjörn Saxmo, head of Saab business unit Ground Combat within Saab business area Dynamics said.
