Polish Naval Port Gdynia contracted Sweden’s Saab for the maintenance and logistic support of the Polish Navy’s RBS15 Mk3 surface-to-surface missile system.
Saab received this contract after partnering with Polish defense company MESKO, a member of Polish Armament Group (PGZ), last year.
The contract includes scheduled maintenance of the missile system and additional ILS in the form of training and additional tool sets. Saab said the deliveries would be taking place 2017-2018.
The RBS15 Mk3 is in service on-board the Polish Navy’s Orkan-class fast attack craft.
“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 ship-borne 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,” said Michael Höglund, head of marketing and sales at Saab’s Missile Systems business unit.
The RBS15 Mk3 missile is jointly produced and marketed by Saab, Sweden and Diehl Defence, Germany.
