Saab receives orders for extended range MAPAM Systems

Saab
: 15 January, 2013  (Application Story)
MAPAM advanced mortar systems from Bofors Dynamics with 60 and 81mm calibres to be delivered by Saab in 2013

Saab Bofors Dynamics Switzerland (SBDS) has signed two contracts for initial deliveries of MAPAM (Mortar Anti Personnel Anti Material) in new developed configurations and calibres.

The order, which was signed in 2012, has a total value of MSEK 11.2 and comprises production and delivery of MAPAM 60mm ER (extended range) with proximity fuze and MAPAM 81mm standard configuration.

“This is a big milestone for MAPAM due to the fact that both types of MAPAM are completely new on the market. Within the past only standard 60mm has been available. Now that SBDS has not only a new product with the 81mm but is also able to provide different configurations eg extended range, for both calibres, a new market has been opened”, says Mr Kai Schlegel (Area Sales Manager and Product Manager for MAPAM).

The industry’s nature is such that depending on circumstances concerning the product and customer, information regarding the customer will not be announced.

MAPAM has a long and successful history. All existing customers are convinced that MAPAM is the mortar of choice. With the new possibilities of configuration and calibres SBDS offers a variety of solutions. The customers are therefore able to choose not only the state-of-the-art mortar but are also able to adapt MAPAM to the individual demands of their forces.

Deliveries will take place during 2013.
