At DSEI 2023, Saab will aim to demonstrate the possibility of integrating its missile-equipped RBS 70 NG Mobile Firing Unit (MFU) — with its ultra-rugged tactical electronics, low-latency video distribution system and the Barracuda Mobile Camouflage System (MCS) — onto Oshkosh’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).
Saab’s MFU uses the RBS 70 NG missile system with its reportedly unjammable laser guided missiles, which give threats little forewarning and even fewer means for countermeasures.
The fully integrated multispectral Barracuda MCS conceals the vehicle while also allowing the JLTV’s rapid deployment against air-based targets when needed.
The tactical electronics and low-latency video distribution system are designed to aid the crew via increased situational awareness of the battlefield.
Saab hopes to address the growing requirements for mobile air defence and strengthen land users capabilities to meet these current and future challenges.
The partnership between Saab and Oshkosh Defense was announced in June 2022, focused on the fully integrated solution of Saab’s Barracuda MCS onto the JLTV.
“We are now offering the most modern mobile air defence solution, which is a perfect match with our existing multispectral camouflage capabilities on the JLTV vehicle. We are ready to support Oshkosh’s current customers as well as offering this to new users,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
Saab will be at stand H7-210 at DSEI.
