Defence and security company Saab and European Defence Agency (EDA) have signed a framework agreement for potential orders of Carl-Gustaf ammunition to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Poland. The agreement will last five years and includes a possible renewal of two more years. The agreement includes potential orders of approximately MSEK 460.

The agreement aims to co-ordinate the purchase of Carl-Gustaf ammunition between several member countries to meet their demand due to the commonalities in ammunition.
“This is a good possibility for several countries to procure high quality ammunition for their Carl-Gustaf in an effective and cost efficient way. The first orders are however estimated no earlier than 2015”, says Görgen Johansson, Senior Vice President and Head of Saab’s Business Area Dynamics.
