Developed in the 1940s and as relevant in today’s technology-driven theatres of combat. A clever basic design that has been constantly innovated, and that is now used by more than 40 nations across the planet. The story of Saab’s Carl-Gustaf is the story of a Swedish battleground hero.
Modern warfare is changing at a rapid pace and forces can no longer make do with missile systems that might struggle to face up to tomorrow’s threats.
The new shoulder-fired weapon system launched in 2014, Carl-Gustaf M4, is equipped with many new and unique features which will enhance the capability of soldiers on the battlefield. One of these is the shot counter.

How well do you really know the RBS15? The following facts might surprise you.
For Sergeant Raymond Miller of the US Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, the Carl-Gustaf system has been a game changer during operations.
