Carl-Gustaf M4

Profitable growth through innovation in Ground Combat

2 min read

The Ground Combat business has grown over the last years through innovative solutions while maintaining stable profitability. For decades, Saab has been successful in developing capabilities within Ground Combat that have fulfilled many customers’ needs. Modular design, tactical flexibility, variety of ammunition and ease of use are some of the key features in the strong portfolio consisting of Carl-Gustaf, AT4 and NLAW.

The market potential in the area is high following the increase in defence spending and one example of how Saab will take advantage of this potential is to build on already installed base and migrate into the new version of Carl-Gustaf M4. To drive further profitable growth, the focus now is to increase the production capacity in order to deliver higher volumes.
