French army purshases more AT4 CS weapons

French army purchases more AT4 CS weapons Back in 1996 the French army purchased a large number of the then, newly developed by Bofors, AT 4 CS anti armour weapon system. The AT 4 CS is a disposable, single round, anti armour weapon system having the capability to be fired from confined spaces, a characteristic unique in recoilless anti armour systems. The model on which it is based, namely the AT4 system, has been in service for many years with several NATO countries. A further order has now been placed by DSA/SPART (Direction des Systèmes D'Armee/ Service des Programmes D'Armements Terrestre) for the AT4 CS system with Saab Bofors Dynamics AB in cooperation with the French TDA (Thomson Dasa Armements.) The order is valued at more than MSEK 300. The order has already been planned for and therefore will not mean any new jobs, but it is important with regard to the company's workshops in Karlskoga.
