LINKOPING, Sweden, June 29 (UPI) -- BAE Systems in Sweden has ordered sight and fire control systems from Saab for the upgrade and modernization of Norwegian army combat vehicles.
The contract for Saab's Universal Tank and Anti-Aircraft Sight systems, which include a virtual image display, is worth about $15.6 million. Saab said the units will be produced in Sweden and deliveries will begin in August and continue for a period of two years.
