The Danish Ministry of Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) has placed an order with Swedish defence company Saab for the multi-role, man-portable Carl-Gustaf M4 weapon.
The order will make Denmark the 15th customer for the M4 version and deliveries will take place in 2022.
The Danish Armed Forces have been using Carl-Gustaf, which is designated Dysekanon in the country, since the 1970s.
Saab states that the recoilless Carl-Gustaf M4 weapon increases tactical flexibility. It is built to satisfy future requirements and is compatible with advanced fire control devices and prepared for specialised ammunition, putting advanced technology at forces’ fingertips.
“We are ready to supply Denmark with Carl-Gustaf M4. The user-focused design of the Carl-Gustaf M4 will ensure the Danish forces that they will have what they need, when they need it,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
