The Latvian National Armed Forces (LNAF) are one of the latest users of Saab’s deployable health care solutions. The interest grew when they conducted miltary exercises together with the Swedish Armed Forces. Today they are one of the latest customers of the solution and have used it successfully in exercises with both Denmark and Sweden.

“In order to fulfil the medical support tasks of the LNAF, we had a number of high-profile requirements, for example high self-sufficiency, portability and deployability.
