Saab awarded 23 million Euro corvette contract

Saab has won a 23 million Euro order to adapt and integrate a planning and combat management system for the RBS15 anti-ship missile system on the Swedish Navy’s Visby-class corvette.

Saab has won an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) to adapt and integrate a planning and combat management system for the RBS15 anti-ship missile system on the Visby-class corvette.

The contract is worth MSEK 210 (23 million Euros).

‘We are very proud to be entrusted with this integration by the FMV. It will mean greater flexibility for the future and for coming installations of anti-ship missile systems,’ said Gunnar SprÃ¥ng of Saab Bofors Dynamics.

The order is a modification to a previous project to integrate missiles on weapon decks and represents the final stage in installing RBS15 as the operational anti-ship missile system on the Swedish Navy’s new Visby-class stealth corvettes.

Work on the contract will be carried out at Saab Bofors Dynamics in Linköping and at SaabTech in Järfälla, Stockholm.
