AT4 Support Weapon for Indian Armed Forces

Saab’s AT4CS AST can be fired from confined spaces such as inside buildings, bunkers and other urban environments By DA Reporter / 24 Jan 2022

Saab’s AT4 weapon has been selected by the Indian Armed Forces through a competitive program for a single-shot weapon. AT4 will be used by the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force. 

The order includes the AT4CS AST, which can be fired from confined spaces such as inside buildings, bunkers and other urban environments. The AT4CS AST offers a tandem warhead with a breach or blast mode, which is optimized to defeat enemies within buildings and to destroy structures, which can create a point of access into them.

The contract was signed by FFV Ordnance AB, responsible for Saab’s Ground Combat offer in India. 

“We are honored that the Indian Armed Forces, which are already users of our Carl-Gustaf system, have also selected Saab for their single-shot weapon need,” said Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics. “The Indian Army and Indian Air Force can be confident in the knowledge that they have the necessary firepower to give them the advantage.”

AT4 is one of the most popular and successful support weapon families on the market. Operated by a single soldier, this single-shot system has proven efficacy against structures, landing craft, helicopters, armored vehicles and personnel. Its 84 mm caliber warhead offers enhanced power and performance.
