Saab has received an order from the Japan Self-Defense Forces, JGSDF, for the supply of the Carl-Gustaf® multifunctional portable weapon system. The order includes more than 300 systems and deliveries will take place in 2025.
Carl-Gustaf is a multifunctional portable weapon system that offers high tactical flexibility through its wide range of ammunition types. It is extremely light and has established itself as the main shoulder weapon in many countries. It has been in operation in the Japan Self-Defense Forces since 1979.
“This order is further proof that our Carl-Gustaf multifunctional weapon system meets the high standards of the Japan Self-Defense Forces and we look forward to continuing to support and strengthen its capabilities,” said Görgen Johansson, head of Saab Dynamics’ business area.
With proven results on the battlefield, the Carl-Gustaf provides the effectiveness that soldiers need. Carl-Gustaf’s wide range of ammunition types makes it flexible and capable of dealing with any situation, whether it’s defeating an armored vehicle or structure, or illuminating the battlefield during night operations.
