US Army purchases anti-armour weapon from Saab

The US Army has placed a first order for the AT4 CS anti-armour weapon
with Saab Bofors Dynamics in Karlskoga. The order has been preceded by
an extensive United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM)
qualification, which lasted throughout 2003.

"This is an important first order for the AT4 CS from a particularly
significant customer", says Tomas Samuelsson, President of Saab Bofors
Dynamics.

The AT4 CS is a further development of the AT4 that was already bought
by the US Army in large numbers from the beginning of 1980s. The AT4 CS
is specially developed for use in "Urban Warfare", that is combat in
built up areas.

The purchase is part of a Delivery Order Contract between Saab Bofors
Dynamics and the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).

Saab is one of the world's leading high-technology companies, with its
main operations focusing on defence, aviation and space. The group
covers a broad spectrum of competence and capabilities in systems
integration.
