The contract covers life-extension services to HMS Gavle and HMS Sundsvall and a general inspection after both vessels have been in service for six years, Saab said Friday.

Sweden’s corvettes are designed to support air defense, anti-submarine warfare and surface combat missions.

Saab will perform contract work at its Karlskrona- and Jarfalla-based facilities through 2020.
