Saab: Saab Receives Order from Latvia for RBS 70 Missiles

Defence and security company Saab has received an order for RBS 70
missiles from the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Latvia.
Deliveries will take place during the period 2016-2017.

Latvia has been an RBS 70 customer since 2004, and in 2015 Saab signed
a contract with the Latvian Ministry of Defence for deliveries of RBS
70 missiles. This order is a call-up of an option as part of the
previously signed contract, which was announced by Saab on 22 October
2015.

"We are pleased to see the RBS 70 system as a key capability that
contributes to strengthening the defence and security of the Latvian
nation. The RBS 70 is a modern air defence missile system with
flexible design and several upgrade possibilities that meet Latvia's
evolving needs," says Anna Fröjd, head of Saab market area Nordic and
Baltic.

In June 2016 the Latvian Air Force test-fired the RBS 70 and the
latest generation RBS 70 NG during the air defence exercise "Baltic
Zenith 2016" held in Š??de, Latvia. Approximately 90 soldiers and
national guards from Latvia's Air Defence Wing of Air Force Aviation
Base and 17th Air Defence Battalion of the National Guard, as well as
soldiers of the Air Defence Unit of Lithuanian Armed Forces, took
part in the exercise. Read more about the live-firing here

The Saab portfolio of short-range ground-based air defence missile
systems includes the RBS 70 and the latest version, RBS 70 NG. The
RBS 70 system has an impressive track-record on the market with more
than 1,600 launchers and over 17,000 missiles delivered to nineteen
countries.
