Saab Dynamics announced it has received an order for RBS 70 missiles from the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Latvia. Deliveries will take place during the period 2016-2017.

Latvia has been an RBS 70 system customer since 2004, and in 2015 Saab signed a contract with the Latvian Ministry of Defence for deliveries of RBS 70 missiles. This order is a call-up of an option as part of the previously signed contract, which was announced by the Swedish company on 22 October 2015.

In June 2016 the Latvian Air Force test-fired the RBS 70 and the latest generation RBS 70 NG during the air defence exercise “Baltic Zenith 2016” held in Šķēde, Latvia.
