In the beginning of 2015 Saab and Boeing tested the Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB). By integrating the SDB I air-launched weapon with the M26 ground-based rocket motor (from the Multiple Launch Rocket System) Saab and Boeing created a new class of precision attack system. Successful live-fire tests have shown that the bomb can withstand a rocket artillery launch with no compromise in its flight performance.
For the first time ever in Malaysia, the GLSDB together with the newly-developed Carl-Gustaf M4, will be showcased to the visitors at the 2016 DSA exhibition, held in Kuala Lumpur 18-21 April.
“It is a great honor to be in Malaysia with these ground-breaking and newly-developed weapon systems. The GLSDB will bring new strength to armed forces around the world thanks to its ability to engage any target in any direction. Our Carl-Gustaf M4 is a weapon that simultaneously makes use of the best innovations that today has to offer, while looking to the future and setting out a path for the integration of future technologies”, says Görgen Johansson, head of Saab business area Dynamics.
The GLSDB is a long-range precision attack solution that expands the capabilities of armed forces. Highly effective and accurate over long ranges, the GLSDB has the ability to fly complex trajectories and manoeuvres to strike targets that cannot be reached by conventional
