Saab’s Latest Recoilless Rifle

    I thought they just made jets and discontinued automobiles. Saab Defense just unveiled their updated Carl Gustaf 84mm weapon system at AUSA 2014. It is called the M4 Multipurpose Weapon. It is to replace the more commonly known M3 Multi-role Anti-armor Anti-tank Weapon System (MAAWS). The M4 will be known as the M3A1 MAAWS.

    According to Kit Up!, the new M3A1 will be lighter at only 15 lbs compared to its predecessor the M2 weighing in at 22 lbs. The M3A1 saves weight due to a titanium liner and carbon fiber wrapping. They also shaved off about 3 inches n OAL.
