“Through the order from NSPA, we see NATO’s continued interest in our missile systems. The Mk II missile is a capable missile with an altitude coverage of 4 km and a range of 7 km,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

The Saab portfolio of short-range ground-based air defense 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 18,000 missiles delivered to nineteen countries.

According to Saab: “The RBS 70 NG is not just a missile system: it’s the expertise and dedication of a team with more than 50 years missile development and production experience. Their creativity and ingenuity have created a world-leading air-defense system.”

Swedish man-portable air-defense system designed for anti-aircraft warfare in all climate zones and with little to no support from other forces.
