    Saab has received an order from its German partner Diehl Defence for the Anti-Ship Missile RBS15 Mk3 ship system for delivery 2019-2024. The order value is approx. SEK160 million (€15.5 million) with several priced options related to Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) and IT Security. Deliveries will take place during the period 2019 to 2024.

    Recently the German Navy committed to buying additional K130 class ships; this order comprises onboard ship systems for these. As industrial prime for RBS15 procurement in Germany, Diehl Defence has placed this order to include all infrastructure required for shipboard integration.

    The order contains the necessary infrastructure to equip the ships with the RBS15 missiles. The order was received from Diehl Defence, industrial prime for the RBS15 procurement in Germany. The contractor is a German consortium of three shipyards named ARGE K-130.

    The RBS15 missile system family is one of the market’s most flexible and effective armaments. For almost 30 years, the RBS15 missile family has provided fleets, coastal batteries and air forces with advanced anti-ship capabilities. The RBS15 is jointly produced by Saab and Diehl Defence, serving with armed forces from Sweden, Finland, Germany, Poland, Croatia, Thailand and an undisclosed country.
