The Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command Headquarters (FDFLCHQ) have inked a contract with Saab for training systems worth approximately SEK 47 million.
Deliveries will start in 2018.
“For years, we have supplied the Finnish Defence Forces with state-of-the art training solutions. By combining these new training systems with the existing ones, the Finnish Defence Forces will be able to conduct instrumentation training involving up to 2400 participants”, says Åsa Thegström, head of business unit Training & Simulation within Saab business area Dynamics.
“The order is in line with our long-term commitment to help the Finnish Defence Forces improve their battlefield capabilities, and we are confident that they will benefit from these new training systems”, says Åsa Thegström.
Training support for the Finnish Army’s KASI mobile Combat Training Centre (CTC) is provided by Saab, which also sets up, supports and moves the mobile combat training centre to different training sites.
Saab will also deliver KASI training systems to two new Finnish Army regiments.
The KASI mobile Combat Training Centre (CTC) has been used by the Finnish Army since 2005.
