BAE Systems selects Konstrukta-Defence for mortar contract

BAE Systems has contracted Konstrukta-Defence from the Slovak Republic to produce barrels for the Swedish Army’s Mjölner mortar system.

Konstrukta will produce 84 120-millimeter barrels to be modified as needed to meet the requirements for the Mjölner system, which is being integrated on Swedish Army CV90 Infantry Fighting Vehicles.

ZTS Metalurg, a Slovak-based manufacturer, will supply the steel for the barrels with deliveries set to commence in December and continuing through July 2020.

BAE Systems has also established relationships with several Slovak companies to offer the Commander SK radar system, a high performance long- and medium-range mobile or semi-static three-dimensional air surveillance radar. This programme will deliver a modern capability to the Slovak armed forces and deliver significant value to Slovak industry.

Tommy Gustafsson-Rask, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems Hägglunds, the prime contractor for Mjölner integration on the CV90s commented: “BAE Systems has a proven track record of partnering with local companies to not only meet the short-term needs of our customers, but to establish long-term, lasting relationships that develop new opportunities for growth and investment.”
