Saab Thailand “is engaging very actively” in replacing Royal Thai Air Force’s old F-16 fighters with Gripen E from 2028, Fredrik Lindblom, Head of Saab Thailand said in an interview with DefenseHere.
“So that is one of the key opportunities that we as Saab are looking into and are engaging very closely, both with the Royal Thai Air Force and some of the other armed forces as well. We do have the Carl Gustaf anti-tank system, which is a man carrier rocket that we can, you know, fire on tanks and similar armored vehicles.
The Carl Gustaf M3. And we also do have the RBS 70, which is a ground-based air defense capability that that are used by the Royal Thai Air Force as well. So that's part of what we have in our installed base here. And going forward, we know that the Royal Thai Army are also looking into the next generation of Carl Gustaf the M4 as well.
So we are engaging in that. I mean, for us, we are extremely proud of what we have done over the past two decades with all the armed forces, the army, the Navy and the Air Force. And of course, we are looking forward to strengthening that corporation that we have with offering our next generation or the new generation Gripen E for the Royal Thai Air Force, our new combat management system for the next Thai frigate that the Royal Thai Navy are looking into building here in the coming years.”
