Saab has received an order worth around 135 MSEK for deliveries of the Carl-Gustaf M4 Ground Combat Indoor Trainer (GC IDT), with deliveries to take place in 2022-2023.

The order is placed within a framework agreement, signed in June 2019, which allows Swedish Defence Material Administration (FMV), together with the Estonian and Latvian Armed Forces, to place orders for Carl-Gustaf M4 weapons, training systems and associated equipment during a 10-year period. Saab’s Ground Combat Indoor Trainer (GC IDT) provides the user with replica weapons, a virtual environment and a sophisticated evaluation for realistic and accurate training.

The order comprise complete training studios which enables simultaneous training of up to 100 soldiers. The order also comprise conversion kits enabling quick conversion from a studio deployment to stand alone individual trainers with small footprint. The GC IDT system can be extended to also include training with additional weapon types ranging from small arms to shoulder-launched missiles.

Åsa Thegström, Head of Saab’s business unit Training & Simulation, said: “We are proud to provide the Swedish Armed Forces with our realistic and cost-efficient virtual training solution GC IDT. By utilising our innovative thinking and technology, the Carl-Gustaf M4 GC IDT replicates the operations and characteristics of the real weapons and ammunition, their ballistics and terminal effects. By that we are able to provide the crew with required skills as well as engagement techniques training combined with training using the real systems.”
