The recently signed framework agreement allows the customer to place orders for Saab's AT4 disposable weapon system and ammunition for the Carl-Gustaf recoilless anti-armor system. A first purchase order of $83 million (approximately SEK771 million) was released at the signing of the agreement.

"This framework agreement further strengthens our relationship with the U.S. Armed Forces, who have been users of our ground combat systems for decades. We see these continued investments as a clear proof that the customer values the flexibility and effectiveness of our systems," says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

"Carl-Gustaf and AT4 have both been used extensively and with great success by U.S. forces in combat. They have both proven to be reliable systems. This new agreement will enable U.S. Forces to add new capabilities and be even more effective going forward," says Erik Smith, President and CEO, Saab Defense & Security USA.
