Diehl Defence has received a three year service contract from the Swedish material procurement agency to ensure high availability and readiness of the country’s ELDENHET 98 air defence system. The contract award followed delivery and handover of the IRIS-T SLS weapon systems in 2020. The Swedish IRIS-T SHORAD configuration, installed on a Hägglunds BV 410 carrier and a Diehl ML-98 launcher, was introduced into service in the Air Defence Regiment after passing several firing campaigns on the Vidsel test and firing range. With the new contract Diehl Defence will continue a long record of proven cooperation with Swedish Armed Forces.
