These will be delivered in 2020 and integrated in accordance with the Swedish Armed Forces decision.

Today, there is a 40mm MK2 on the mine clearance vessels Koster and on HMS Carlskrona.

The Bofors 40 Mk4 Naval Guns are used as general-purpose weapons to combat both air and surface targets but can also be used against coastal ground targets.

The compact and low weight Bofors 40 Mk4 Naval Gun is a flexible, multi-purpose system offering a high rate of fire and the ability to switch between optimised ammunition types, including the programmable 40-mm 3P all-target ammunition. The system’s effectiveness against air, sea, and ground targets provides high survivability and tactical proficiency at all levels of conflict.
