Defense and security company Saab has received an ammunition order from US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) for the Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon system, known in the US as MAAWS.

The order comes under the terms of Saab’s framework contract announced with USSOCOM in August 2014 for the 84-mm recoilless rifle system. Deliveries are expected to take place during 2015 and 2016.

“This order demonstrates the continued confidence of our customer in the capabilities and versatility of the Carl-Gustaf. The system gives soldiers a battle-winning edge through its high accuracy, supreme effectiveness and great versatility,” said Torbjörn Saxmo, Head of business unit Ground Combat, Saab.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 is the latest version of the portable, shoulder-launched, multi-role weapon system. It gives users a wide range of engagement options and allows troops to remain agile and effective in any scenario. It builds on the system’s formidable capabilities, offering a higher degree of accuracy, lighter construction and compatibility with future innovations.
