Delivery took place in mid July 2017.

The Slovak Armed Forces are currently equipped with several units of the Carl-Gustaf M3 multi-role weapon.

In order to further strengthen their defence capability, Slovakia’s defence ministry decided to acquire the new Carl-Gustaf M4 system, which has recently been delivered, making Slovakia the first country to deploy this new weapon.

The Carl-Gustaf M4 has all the effectiveness and versatility of the proven Carl-Gustaf system but its improved, lightweight design – weighing less than 7 kg – offers significant mobility improvements to the soldier.

The M4 is also compatible with future battlefield technology developments such as intelligent sighting systems and programmable ammunition.
