The U.S. Special Operations Command has awarded the Swedish company Saab a follow-on order for additional Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon systems and ammunition. The order has a total value of US$25.8 million for delivery next year (2013). “Having this system in service and combat proven with U.S. Special Operations Forces is yet another stamp of approval and proof of the continued confidence that the U.S. Special Operations Command customer has in our company and our products”, said Saab North America President, Dan-Åke Enstedt.
The Carl-Gustaf M3 is a multi-role, man-portable shoulder-fired 84mm recoilless rifle system. This combat proven weapon system has successively been modernized and adapted to meet evolving requirements. The system is in use in more than 40 countries worldwide.
