Saab to supply NDMA with Carl-Gustaf ammunition

Saab has secured a contract worth around SEK 110 million from the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency (NDMA) for deliveries of Carl-Gustaf ammunition.

The order comes under the terms of Saab’s framework agreement signed with the Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency in 2017 regarding Carl-Gustaf ammunition. The framework agreement enables the customer to place orders for live and training ammunition rounds during the period 2017-2022. The ammunition will be used by the Norwegian Armed Forces, currently operating the Carl-Gustaf in both M2 and M3 versions.

Employing a wide range of ammunition types, the Carl-Gustaf system allows dismounted soldiers to take on multiple challenges – from neutralising armoured vehicles to clearing obstacles and defeating enemies in buildings. The Carl-Gustaf system, which has been sold to more than 40 countries, is successively being developed with new ammunition types and enhanced capabilities.

Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab´s business area Dynamics, said: “This is the second order from the Norwegian customer since we signed the framework contract and for us this is a clear proof of their trust in our ammunition portfolio.

“The Norwegian Armed Forces has been a user of the Carl-Gustaf system for many years and we know that they only want the best ammunition for their soldiers. We will supply them with that.”
