Raytheon, Saab Form Infantry Weapon Modernization Partnership

Raytheon and Saab have signed a partnership agreement to update a shoulder-fired weapon system the latter company designed for use by ground troops in multiple operations.

Both companies will collaborate to modernize the Carl-Gustaf man-portable weapon offering and identify opportunities to update Saab’s AT4 disposable anti-tank missile system in efforts to help address U.S. and international military requirements, Raytheon said Thursday.

The U.S. Army and other military organizations across 40 countries use Carl-Gustaf to perform combat missions.

Raytheon noted the M4/M3E1 variant of the Saab-built weapon weighs 15 pounds and the updated version is seven pounds lighter than the original system.
