Saab’s Latest Carl-Gustaf M4 and AT4 Debut AT DESEI 2015

Defence and security company Saab presents, for the first time at DSEI, the next-generation Carl-Gustaf M4 alongside new capabilities for the AT4.

There is no simple agreement on what it means to network weapon systems. Some in industry and military services state it is the ability to use all available sensors to detect incoming threats and then decide which is the most suitable missile to use to counter that threat based on distance from the threat, size of available missile inventories and economics.
