Saab has, in collaboration with Raytheon, received a contract from the U.S. Army to demonstrate a new guided munition for the Carl-Gustaf® system, with three all-up-round test firings against threat-representative targets.
This new munition answers a U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) requirement to increase the capability of the multirole Carl-Gustaf weapon system built by Saab.
Since 1948, the Carl-Gustaf multi-role weapon has been supporting dismounted infantry around the world in dealing with a full range of battlefield challenges.
The Carl-Gustaf weapon system is used by the U.S. Army and ground forces of more than 40 other countries and has been modernized to meet the changing needs of soldiers operating in the world’s most demanding combat environments.
