The Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has contracted Saab for a life extension programme for the TORPEDO 62 heavyweight torpedo system. Initial order value is approx. MSEK485 (€46.6 million).
The initial order primarily comprises a review of the system, modifications and enhancements and includes preparations for later stages of the life extension programme.
“This order ensures future development of the heavyweight torpedo, with the possibility for the TORPEDO 62 to remain in operation with the Swedish Navy until the mid-2040s,” commented Görgen Johansson, head of Saab’s business area Dynamics.
TORPEDO 62 is a heavyweight torpedo system for surface and underwater targets, developed for the Swedish Navy and equipped with an advanced high capacity, long endurance propulsion system, combined with an advanced target seeker.
