The AT4 family is a range of lightweight, portable, disposable weapons characterized by ease of use. The AT4 can be used against tanks and heavy combat vehicles, as well as against threats in buildings and fortifications, and to protect fixed installations, supply points and other vital assets.
“We are proud to have been selected once again to supply our world-class single-shot AT4 system to France. Our future-ready AT4 will provide the French armed forces with the firepower they need to give them an edge on the battlefield,” says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s Dynamics business area.
France previously ordered Saab’s AT4CS ER (extended range), AT4CS HE (high explosive) and AT4CS AST (anti-structure). The AT4 family is known as Roquette NG (Nouvelle Génération) in France.
