Saab: New capabilities for Saab's AT4 family

Defence and security company Saab is developing significant new
capabilities for its AT4 family of disposable shoulder-launched
weapons systems. The enhanced weapons will deliver extended range
(ER) and improved high explosive (HE) effects. This enables the
soldier to defeat enemy targets with much greater flexibility and in
many more scenarios. The update further confirms Saab's leading
position as a supplier of modern ground combat weapon systems.

Building on the modularity of the 84-mm calibre system applied to both
the AT4 and Carl-Gustaf weapons, the new capabilities allow a soldier
to engage and defeat more types of enemy targets, over longer
distances and in more complex environments.

The AT4CS ER takes the well-proven anti-armour capability of the AT4CS
(Confined Space) and extends its effective range to 600 m. The AT4CS
HE will provide the soldier with a direct-fire support capability
capable of engaging enemy troops in air-burst or impact mode out to a
distance of 1,000 m.

"The new members of our AT4 family further expand the great
versatility of the weapon and emphasise its position as the leading
disposable shoulder-launched support weapon on the market," says
Andreas Andersson, Product Director, Ground Combat, Dynamics.

Present in more than 15 countries worldwide, the AT4 system is fully
combat-proven. It provides the extended range required for mission
success, along with night and confined space launch capabilities.
Expert gunners are not required to operate the weapon effectively.
All AT4s are single-shot and fully disposable. Key charateristics
include high target effect and hit propability - resulting in the
maximum kill probability for each weapon fired.

The AT4 is one of the most successful anti-armour weapons ever
developed. Battle-hardened in some of the most challenging modern
warfare environments, it is a lightweight, man-portable, fully
disposable weapon.The AT4 is equally effective against landing craft,
aircraft and helicopters as it is against ground vehicles. It can
also be employed to protect fixed installations, supply points and
other vital assets.With the well-proven AT4CS version the system is
further optimised for launch inside confined spaces.

The AT4CS family is demonstrated to be a highly reliable, robust and
durable weapon system that has been extensively proven in combat.
With the upcoming capabilities the AT4CS family will consist of:

· AT4CS HP (High Penetration)
· AT4CS RS (Reduced Sensitivity)
· AT4CS ER (Extended Range)
· AT4CS AST (Anti-Structure)
· AT4CS HE (High Explosive)
