Sweden orders ten combat boats from Saab

Defence and security company Saab has received an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for ten combat boats.


As informed, the contract begins in 2024 and deliveries will be made continuously over the coming years.

The order value is approximately SEK 400 million ($37.5 million).

According to Saab, the boats are based on the CB90 next generation design. They will be manufactured by Saab’s shipyard in Docksta.

“Combat boats are advanced platforms that can be used for many different types of missions. We are proud that Saab’s naval capabilities continue to contribute to Sweden’s defence,” said Mats Wicksell, head of Saab’s business area Kockums.

Saab recently agreed with Dutch shipbuilder Damen to export the advanced expeditionary C-71 submarines. The submarines have been developed for the Royal Netherlands Navy to replace the current Walrus class.
