The Carl-Gustaf® recoilless rifle is a man-portable, multi-role weapon system that allows dismounted soldiers to effectively deal with multiple challenges on the modern battlefield. Adaptable and flexible, the system is constantly evolving to satisfy future user and market needs. Ever-changing targets require a flexible, multi-purpose system. The Carl-Gustaf provides the effectiveness soldiers need to shut the enemy down before they can react in all environments. Having this single-weapon system for all situations increases tactical flexibility while reducing the amount of equipment to carry.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 can be fitted with a wide range of sights to ensure maximum effect in any tactical situation and flexibility for the user. The system is attached with standard clip-on telescopic sight, with additional options, including open sight, red dot sight and advanced fire control devices, available.For critical missions where every second counts, Saab Fire Control Device (FCD) 558 has soldiers covered. No range knobs and built-in ballistics data for all Carl-Gustaf ammunition allow rapid reloading and adjustment, and improved sensors for temperature and air pressure, along with optical and night capability, give ground forces the advantage in every scenario.
