Sweden Orders Next Generation Carl-Gustaf Rounds

Saab received orders from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for deliveries of both the new High Explosive round and Fire Control Device for the recoilless Carl-Gustaf rifle on Tuesday.

The order values are approximately SEK 300 million ($32.8 million) and SEK 65 million ($7.1 million) respectively and deliveries will take place during 2022-2023.

The ammunition in this order will be used by the Swedish Armed Forces. The new High Explosive round is programmable and has the ability to communicate with the new Fire Control Device. This means that the Carl-Gustaf operator will be able to quickly configure a chambered round.
