The Norwegian armed forces have ordered a number of recoilless Swedish anti-tank rifles Carl-Gustaf M4, according to Saab’s press release.
On Monday, the company’s press release announced that the Norwegian armed forces had signed a framework agreement with Saab on the Carl-Gustaf M4 anti-tank weapon.
As the company notes, Saab has received an initial order for Carl-Gustaf M4 weapons with deliveries in 2021.
The recently signed framework agreement enables the Norwegian customer to place orders for Carl-Gustaf M4, related equipment and training systems within seven years.
The Norwegian Armed Forces have been using the Carl-Gustaf M2 system since the early 1970s. Today the M2 and M3 versions are used by the Norwegian armed forces.
“We welcome the newest user to the Carl-Gustaf M4. It is a great success to continue to support the Norwegian armed forces with our future-proof Carl-Gustaf M4 ”, says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s Dynamics division.
Carl-Gustaf M4 is the latest version of the portable, shoulder-mounted, multipurpose weapon system. It offers users a wide range of uses and enables troops to remain agile and effective in any scenario. It builds on the impressive capabilities of the system and offers a higher level of accuracy, lighter construction and compatibility with future innovations.
The M4 is also compatible with intelligent sighting systems and future technological developments such as programmable ammunition. Since launching in 2014, Saab has signed contracts with fourteen different nations for Carl-Gustaf M4.
