Guided Munition to Carl Gustaf

Guided Munition to Carl Gustaf 2 November, 2019

The Guided Carl Gustaf Munition (GCGM) Project, which developed by Raytheon Missile Systems and Saab Dynamics, is progressing rapidly.

Within the scope of the project, a guided ammunition for the Carl Gustaf systems was developed. As a result of the studies initiated in November 2017, the initial launch tests of semi-active laser guided ammunition were performed. The missile, which can also be fired from closed areas, can hit its target with CEP <1 metres . Ammunition, supported by inertial guidance system, can be effective against different target types, such as light armored vehicles, personnel, fortifications, from 30 to 2,000 meters. The GCGM, which can reach twice the range of Carl Gustaf ammunition in use, will also give the family of ammunition that can be fired from the launcher, adds guidance option.

The system is loaded into the launcher with a cylindrical canister, weighing 6.8 kilograms. Driven by a low smoke solid fuel rocket motor, the system has an additional launch engine for firing from closed spaces. The GCGM can reach its maximum range in less than 12 seconds.
