Celsius: Hellenic Army - new user of the Bofors Carl Gustaf-system Bofors Carl Gustaf AB, a company within the Celsius Group, has been awarded a contract valued at c. SEK 170 M from Greece for ammunition to be used in the 84 mm Carl Gustaf-system.

This contract involves direct deliveries to the Hellenic Army of armour penetrating ammunition as well as deliveries of component kits to the Hellenic Arms Industry (EBO) for further production in Greece.
