Saab Dynamics announced it has received an order from the Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV) for production of next generation anti-ship missiles. The total order value amounts to SEK 500 million and deliveries will begin in the mid-2020s.

In March 2017, Saab announced an order from FMV for development and production of the next generation anti-ship missile system. It will be delivered to the Swedish Armed Forces and will be integrated on both the new Swedish Gripen E fighters and the Visby-cclass corvettes. This new order covers deliveries of additional missiles.

The next generation anti-ship missile system combines capabilities from the RBS15 anti-ship missile family with new and enhanced capabilities. The RBS15 missile family is jointly produced by Saab and Diehl Defence.
