Saab has received an order from its German partner Diehl Defence for the RBS15 anti-ship missile to be supplied to the German Navy. The order value is approximately 1.7 BSEK with deliveries between 2022 and 2026.

This is part of a framework agreement between Saab and Diehl Defence, which offers the possibility for additional procurement in the future, where Saab’s share is up to approximately 1.5 BSEK. The agreement allows orders to be placed until the end of 2024, with the missiles and launcher systems to be placed on the German Navy’s BRAUNSCHWEIG class corvettes. In addition to the missile systems, the order also includes associated equipment and services.

RBS15, which the German Navy has operated since 2011, provides naval operators with a long range all weather anti-ship and sea denial capability and is designed to overcome the challenges of the modern naval battlespace. Built for deployment on multiple platforms, the RBS15 missile system currently serves with the armed forces of several nations around the world and is jointly produced by Saab and Diehl Defence.
