The contract extends an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity framework agreement signed by DOD and Saab in 2019, which could increase in value by $422 million, the company said Monday.
DOD ordered units of the AT4CS reduced sensitivity system and the Carl-Gustaf HE 441E recoilless rifle for the U.S. Army, Marine Corps and Special Operations Command.
AT4CS is designed as a portable and fully disposable weapon with flexible shoulder-launched munition. Another man-portable shoulder-fired rifle, the Carl-Gustaf M4 is compatible with the HE 441E, which can hit semi-hardened targets and soft-skinned vehicles.
“The DOD’s expanded commitment to our close combat solutions validates Saab’s focus on delivering innovative, advanced products that can evolve to meet the long-term needs of our partners,” said Erik Smith, president and CEO of Saab in the U.S.
