Requirements for the RBS-58 complex include portability on the battlefield, firing range in the range from 200 to 4000 m, round-the-clock use, infrared homing head uncooled or air-cooled, use of the shot-and-forget mode, the ability to capture the target after launch, the ability to install on armored vehicles, the storage period of the rocket is at least 10 years with the possibility of extending to 20 years.

The upcoming tender is expected to begin supplying systems in the third quarter of 2019. Swedish experts believe that the choice will actually be made between the new French MBDA MMP and israeli Rafael spike-lr.

    "include portability on the battlefield,"

    What is "on the battlefield"? belay

    "Lithuania intends to join the Swedish program of acquiring ATGM RBS-58."

    How does it “join the acquisition program” if Sweden is planning to send RBS-58 to storage? request

      Maybe the Lithuanians also want to buy and hide in a chest in case of "Russian aggression"? Hi Zhenya! hi

                  Volodya, what the Lithuanians will do with this ATGM is a matter of their personal hygiene. This does not concern us at all. But if they pull in our direction, they’ll grab them by the horns. soldier

          Money may not, but anti-tank systems appear. There will be something like this

      Our ultimately lose this tender. The Swedish government is extremely anti-Israeli and this will certainly affect the outcome of the tender.

      And why cheap, if expensive?

      In general, SAAB has long had all the technologies that make it possible to create not just an analogue of the Cornet, but an "advanced" analogue that strikes a target on the fly. They began to work with laser beam control before us, the RBS-70 appeared in 1977. I won’t be surprised if in Iranian-Iraqi times our people managed to stole some decisions in this area, which contributed to the appearance of the Cornet. Why them, which appeared after 11 years, the ATGM was controlled by wire - there is a big mystery ...

        so why not create then? and decided to arm their army with import systems? So they can’t cut their own

    According to Swedish experts, in fact, the choice will be made between the new French MBDA MMP and Israeli Rafael Spike-LR.

    Given the attitude of the leftist Swedish government towards Israel, Spikes will not be bought. Then we’ll have to explain why they are financing the "occupation of Palestine" lol

    Sweden purchases new ATGM

    Very timely, as after the "capture" of the Baltic states, Russia will move troops to Sweden and Norway. With Finland, let's wait.

      It is reasonable. Once in the 40th already ran into so that
      half a year they came to their senses. Finns before the 50s on captured Soviet
      tanks traveled.

        I respect you for reasonable comments, but today you are clearly not in shape. Let's skip 40 g and remember how the 2 MB ended in 1945, including and for Finland the satellite of Germany. This is how they from 40 to 50 g could travel on captured Soviet tanks?

          I myself was surprised when I found out.
          For example, even retreating in 1944, shortly
          before exiting the war, they managed to recapture the Soviet army
          several T-34-85. And they served them until the mid-50s.
          Stalin knowingly excluded Mannerheim from the list of military
          criminals and generally ordered to leave Finland alone. Respected.
          Finland has an amazing tank museum in the city of Parola.
          There are presented all-all the tanks of the Red Army 30-40 year. Moreover
          not donated, but captured whole in battles.

            The Finns are a surprisingly stable nation when it comes to protecting their homeland, but so far the Jews have successfully defended their country.

        Which half year? What are you talking about? the first offensive began in December 1939. Then they ran, or rather miscalculated. They wanted to take in bulk. And in February 1940 the Finns were carried out without stopping.

    It’s high time that the TANK will sail to Sweden, and they have old ATGMs.
