Swedish Government to Procure 10 Saab Combat Boats

The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration has ordered 10 combat boats worth $37.83 million from Saab.

The boats, which will be delivered over several years, are based on Saab’s CB90 Next Generation vessel manufactured in the company’s shipyard in Docksta.

According to Saab’s website, the CB90 Next Generation features a new combat management system and sensors for surveillance and attack power, two water jets that run on a higher efficiency and improved ergonomics and crew comfort.

It has an 18-ton maximum load capacity and can operate at speeds beyond 40 knots.

“Combat boats are advanced platforms that can be used for many different types of missions,” said Mats Wicksell, head of Saab’s business area Kockums. “We are proud that Saab’s naval capabilities continue to contribute to Sweden’s defence.”

The purchase order comes after the Swedish government awarded Saab a $244.1 million contract to deliver the third GlobalEye airborne early warning and control aircraft.
