SAAB chosen for Finnish navy’s squadron 2000 mid-life upgrade programme

Patria has selected Saab to be one of the major suppliers across the Finnish Navy Squadron 2000 Mid-Life Upgrade programme.

Patria has the prime role for the total programme, which includes refurbishment and upgrade of four Hamina-class fast attack crafts.

In a contract worth around SEK 960 million, the Swedish defence and security company will supply the 9LV Combat Management System (CMS), the 9LV Fire Control System (FCS) including the Ceros 200 fire control director and the Trackfire Remote Weapon Station (RWS). Patria has also selected Saab’s TactiCall integrated communications system.

Saab will also, as part of the Squadron 2000 MLU programme, supply its new lightweight torpedo to the Finnish Navy. The new lightweight torpedo, which the Royal Swedish Navy has also previously ordered, is a flexible, advanced Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) solution for littoral conditions. As a flexible system, it can be launched from surface ships, aircraft and submarines in anti-submarine and anti-surface roles.

Anders Gardberg, Director of Saab’s country unit Finland said: “Saab has been a supplier of cutting-edge naval systems to the Finnish Navy for many decades. We have yet again demonstrated that our solutions and expertise meet the requirements of the Finnish Navy and we look forward to further strengthening our cooperation with the Finnish Navy and defence industry”
