STOCKHOLM (BNS): Swedish defence firm SAAB has received an order to deliver the RBS 70 Mk II missiles to the Czech Republic Army.

The order was placed by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA), responsible for acquisitions for NATO members, SAAB said in a statement.

The deliveries will take place in 2019.

Czech Republic is a user of the RBS 70 as well as the new RBS 70 NG system. Both systems are compatible with the Mk II missile.

“Through the order from NSPA, we see NATO’s continued interest in our missile systems. The Mk II missile is a capable missile with an altitude coverage of 4 km and a range of 7 km,” said Gorgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.

The Saab portfolio of short-range ground-based air defence missile systems includes the RBS 70 and the latest version, RBS 70 NG.
