Saab has received an order for the delivery of the RBS 70 NG short-range air defense systems to the Argentine Armed Forces.

The Argentine Navy has used the RBS 70 since 1984 and is now upgrading to the latest RBS 70 NG. This new contract entails a further expansion of the country’s usage of the system, meaning the RBS 70 NG systems, training simulators and missiles delivered will be used by the Argentine Navy, Army, and the Air Force.

“We look forward to further strengthening the air defense of the Argentinian Armed Forces,” said Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics. “With this capability they will have the most modern short-range air defense system on the market, with unjammable laser-guidance as well as an integrated night sight.”

With this order, five nations have signed contracts for RBS 70 NG.
