Saab to provide training systems to Finnish Army

Saab has signed a deal worth SEK 47 million with the Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command Headquarters (FDFLCHQ) for deliveries of training systems to the Finnish Army.

Saab will provide the Finnish Army with expert training support for KASI, its mobile Combat Training Centre (CTC) and will the company set up, support and move the mobile combat training centre to different training sites, providing soldiers and officers of the Finnish Defence Forces with resources for tactical training at all levels. Included in the contract are deliveries of KASI training systems to two new Finnish Army regiments.

Since 2005 the Finnish Army has used the KASI mobile Combat Training Centre (CTC). KASI, a national training resource, can be set-up in any location in Finland and is used for realistic pre-deployment training of international missions as well as supporting regimental combat exercises.

Åsa Thegström, Head of Business unit Training & Simulation within Saab business area Dynamics, said: “For years, we have supplied the Finnish Defence Forces with state-of-the art training solutions. By combining these new training systems with the existing ones, the Finnish Defence Forces will be able to conduct instrumentation training involving up to 2400 participants.

“The order is in line with our long-term commitment to help the Finnish Defence Forces improve their battlefield capabilities, and we are confident that they will benefit from these new training systems”
