Saab contracted for maintenance of Polish Navy's RBS15 Mk3 missiles
Saab has received a new order to provide maintenance and logistic support services for the Polish Navy's RBS15 Mk3 surface-to-surface missile system.
The order has been awarded by the Naval Port Gdynia, and will see Saab supply scheduled maintenance of the RBS15 Mk3 missile system, as well as additional integrated logistics support (ILS) in the form of training and additional tool sets.
RBS15 Mk3 was contracted in 2006 and is currently in service on-board the Polish Navy’s Orkan-class fast attack craft.
The contracted deliveries are slated to take place later this year and throughout 2018.
Saab Dynamics Missile Systems marketing and sales head Michael Höglund said: “The RBS15 Mk3 is a world leading surface-to-surface missile system, providing excellent performance in all weathers.
“It is a vital part of the shipborne Polish Navy offensive capability, and we are happy to assist the Naval Port Gdynia in their professional work ensuring the readiness and availability of this versatile and powerful missile system.”
RBS15 Mk3 is designed to operate in a wide range of scenarios, from anti-ship engagement in blue and littoral waters to land attack missions.
The long-range missile system was manufactured and marketed collaboratively by Saab and Diehl Defence, and is able to serve as the primary anti-surface armament for any type of naval vessel.
The surface-to-surface missile system is equipped with an advanced pre-launch programmable active radar seeker device, which facilitates true fire-and-forget operability in all weather conditions.
