Saab launched a new anti-missile mission on July 16, the anti-missile missile RBS15 Gungnir at the Farnborough International Airshow International Arms Exhibition.
Gungnir still uses engines and combat systems in all weather conditions like the previous RBS15 missiles, but with all the new equipment and equipment.
Saab Vice President Görgen Johansson said:
“The RBS15 Gungnir anti-ship missile can be launched from the ground, from the ground up and from warships, which increases the maneuverability of the rocket, which is very new to the weapon market. Shot more than 300km, capable of accurately targeting destroy in all weather conditions “
With the ability to start from the air, ground and warships, rockets have the flexibility to use and when combined with 3 army forces, the ability to kill the enemy is very high.
Currently used RBS15 Mk3 anti-missiles can integrate new components and change in RBS15 Gungnir anti-ship missiles. This is something that many countries use RBS15 Mk3 missiles, very interested in RBS15 Gungnir
The next generation version of the RBS15 development is anti-missile missile RBS15 Gungnir and production programme was first contracted in March 2017 with the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV). This next generation of RBS15 systems is named Gungnir instead of RBS15 Mk5 as some people thought. That March 2017 contract amounted to SEK 3.2 billion with deliveries to take place during the period 2017-2026 but no information about the quantity of the missile. Additional production of missiles was contracted with FMV in April 2017 for MSEK 500, with deliveries to begin in the mid-2020s.
The RBS15 anti-ship missile is a production combination between Saab and Diehl Defence GmbH & Co. KG. KG.
