Saab Receives NLAW (Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapon) order worth SEK 2.9 billion (approx £ 240 million) from the UK MoD.
Press Release, Linköping, 07 December 2022: Saab has reached an agreement with and received an order from the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence for the Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapon system (NLAW). The order value is approximately SEK 2.9 billion and deliveries will take place 2023-2026.
NLAW is a shoulder-launched, anti-tank guided missile system that attacks the tank from above. “Demand is increasing for anti-tank systems such as NLAW. We look forward to further strengthening our close relationship with the UK and are proud to continue delivering our proven and trusted anti-tank capability,” says Saab’s President and CEO Micael Johansson.
NLAW combines the simplicity of light anti-armour weapons with the advantages of heavy, crew-operated guided missile systems. With NLAW, a single soldier can take out a heavily-protected modern main battle tank at ranges between 20 and 800 metres.
