Saab has received an order from the Latvian Armed Forces for deliveries of the shoulder-launched disposable AT4 weapon system. Deliveries will take place in 2021.
The order is the third placed within the framework agreement signed in 2017 between Saab and Latvian Armed Forces. The framework agreement allows the Latvian Armed Forces to place orders for AT4 systems.
“This order demonstrates the customer’s belief in our AT4 system and in Saab. We are proud to provide our customers with AT4 systems that fulfils their specific demands and needs”, says GÃ¶rgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.
Saab’s single shot AT4 weapon system is combat proven and provides the capabilities required for mission success, including night and confined space capabilities. Since the introduction in the mid 1980’s, the AT4 has been exported to more than 15 countries worldwide.
The AT4 family consists of multiple lightweight, man-portable, fully disposable weapons. Each is optimised for ease of operation, regardless of the user’s experience level. The range includes anti-armour, anti-structure and anti-personnel/high-explosive weapons.
All products in the range benefit from an 84 mm calibre, enabling superb power and performance. The AT4 HEAT provides a powerful defence against infantry-fighting vehicles. Saab’s shoulder-launched anti-armour weapon is easy to operate, fully disposable and benefits from a unique warhead design, offering a very high hit probability.
