U.S. Army Places First Order for Saab’s Carl-Gustaf

Defence and secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny Saab has signed a con­tract with the U.S. Army for the company’s Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon sys­tem. This marks the first time the Army has bought the 84mm recoil­less rifle system. 

The Army and U.S. Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Com­mand placed a com­bined order with a total val­ue of MUSD 31.5 (MSEK 209).

This is very pos­i­tive and it fur­ther proves the capa­bil­i­ty of the Carl-Gustaf sys­tem. It also shows the high lev­el of trust our cus­tomers have for the sys­tem.” says Tomas Samuels­son, Senior Vice Pres­i­dent and Head of Saab’s busi­ness area Dynamics.” 

Saab is thrilled that the U.S. Army has joined with our exist­ing US Spe­cial Oper­a­tions Com­mand cus­tomer in using the Carl-Gustaf sys­tem”, said Saab North Amer­i­ca Pres­i­dent, Dan-Åke Enstedt.
