New Delhi, Jan 20 (PTI) Swedish defence company Saab on Thursday said it has been awarded a contract to supply single-shot anti-armour weapon AT4 to the Indian armed forces.

The company has been awarded the contract for the lightweight and fully disposable weapon after going through a “competitive programme”, a statement issued by Saab said.

“AT4 will be used by the Indian Army and the Indian Air Force,” it said.

Operated by a single soldier, the single-shot system has proven efficacy against structures, landing craft, helicopters, armoured vehicles and personnel, the statement said.
