    Saab business unit Kockums has created an exact replica of the sail to a submarine class Näcken. The sail is a gift to the municipality of Karlskrona that now decorates a roundabout at European route 20 passing the city. The construction process has allowed Saab’s engineers to calibrate and improve the design process called Model Based Development (MBD). MBD facilitates the production phase in complex projects and opens for increased precision and effectivity in future ship building projects.
