84mm Carl Gustaf Upgrade

Replace Existing Systems


The 84mm Carl Gustaf Upgrade Project will introduce new lighter weight recoilless rifles and a new sighting and fire control system that is compatible with the family of existing and future natures of 84mm ammunition, and that will allow for firing under obscuration and low light conditions, while increasing accuracy in all firing conditions.


The existing optical sighting system will be replaced with an advanced sighting system to improve the weapon’s accuracy, which may include a target range finder, compensation for metrological conditions and gunner’s movement. The new rifle will be compatible with the existing ammunition and weigh significantly less than the existing weapon to offset the additional weight of the advanced sighting system. The project is also expected to deliver a simulation system, training equipment and integrated logistic support.
