Australian Army starts operational testing of Saab Carl-Gustaf M4

Posted On Wednesday, 26 May 2021 10:16


In early May, the Australian Army started operational test and evaluation of the man-portable multi-role Saab Carl-Gustaf M4 system at the Army’s School of Infantry in Singleton, New South Wales. Defense Studies reports. The M4 is the intended replacement for the M3 variant currently in service with the Australian Defence Force, as it reaches its ten-year lifespan.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 (CGM4) also called M3E1 in the U.S. Army, is the latest generation of multi-role anti-tank weapon systems in the family of Carl-Gustaf developed and manufactured by the Swedish company Saab. The key characteristic of the Carl-Gustaf M4 is to offer a multi-role weapon for modern infantry units. It is fully optimized for dismounted soldiers who need a light weight, and high-impact weapon.


The Carl-Gustaf M4 was unveiled in October 2014 during AUSA, the Association of the US Army in Washington D.C. In July 2017, Saab delivered Carl-Gustaf M4 multi-role weapons to Slovakia, the first customer to deploy the Carl-Gustaf M4 System. In May 2018, Saab announced an order from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) for deliveries of the Carl-Gustaf M4 the latest version of the Carl-Gustaf weapon system, to the Swedish Armed Forces. In September 2018, Saab received an order for deliveries of the new Carl-Gustaf M4 multi-role weapon system to the Australian Army. This was Saab sixth customer for the Carl-Gustaf M4 system. In November 2018, Saab received an order for deliveries of the new Carl-Gustaf M4 to the Slovenian Armed Forces. In May 2020, SAAB has announced a contract to deliver Carl-Gustaf M4 to the Latvian and Estonian Armed Forces. In May 2021, the Australian Defence Force started operational training with the M4.



In addition to all that I would like to add:

Max range is 1,200 meters and the-M4 has shell guided by laser and it might get to the full range which will be pretty remarkable. Just to remind the readers, the big advantage of the Taliban’s fighter in Afghanistan was a better range of there rifles compare to the M-4.

With the M4 this advantage goes away.
