Saab has signed a contract with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Defence to supply a new advanced training system for the Austrian Army.

The Austrian army has previously purchased Saab simulation systems for its tanks, anti-tank weapons and soldiers. This contract includes Saab's next generation of soldier training systems with new add-on equipment that will extend the current system. Saab will also deliver a mid-life upgrade for Austria's existing vehicle and anti-tank training systems. The contract will provide more capability for training conscripts and professional soldiers.

The order value is approximately SEK 180 million and deliveries are planned from 2015 to 2018. Production will take place in Huskvarna.
