Poland’s Naval Port Gdynia ordered maintenance and logistics support for the Polish Navy’s RBS15 Mk3 surface-to-surface missile system from Sweden’s Saab, the company said Wednesday.
The RBS15 Mk3 currently serves on Poland’s Orkan-class fast attack crafts as a main anti-surface long-range missile system. It is designed to operate in anti-ship engagements in blue and littoral waters as well as land attack situations. It also features a pre-launch programmable active radar seeker.
The support contract includes scheduled maintenance of the missile system and additional integrated logistics support in training and additional tool sets.
Order deliveries are set to occur from 2017-2018. The order value was not disclosed.
The RBS15 Mk3 “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,” Michael Höglund, head of marketing and sales at Saab’s missile systems business unit within the dynamics business area, said in a statement.
The missile is jointly produced and marketed by Saab and Germany’s Diehl Defence.
