The Swedish company Saab announced this week (Tuesday) that it has signed a framework agreement with the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense for the Carl-Gustaf® M4 anti-tank weapon systems and ammunition. A first order for ammunition with a value of approximately $16.5 million was placed by the Lithuanian Defense Materiel Agency in connection with the signing of the framework agreement.
The signing means that the Lithuanian Army will join the same Carl-Gustaf framework agreement as Sweden, Estonia and Latvia. Lithuania has been a user of the Carl-Gustaf system since the mid-1990.
According Saab, since the Carl-Gustaf M4 launch in 2014, Saab has signed contracts with fourteen different nations for the system. The wide range of ammunition provides extreme tactical flexibility, ready for any combat situation, delivering faster engagement, increased hit probability and greater effectiveness.
