SAAB CB90: The Next Generation Combat Boat

SAAB's next-generation CB90 combat boat has been on display at DSEI 21.

As well as being fast and agile, the CB90 is capable of carrying up to 21 amphibious troops with full equipment.

It is designed to quickly transport marines and other personnel and is known for how easily it can rapidly deploy troops on-shore and depart again – regardless of the terrain.

It can also be armed with large-calibre machine-guns, an MK19 grenade launcher, naval mines, depth charges and its own remote weapons station.

And, depending on the mission, the CB90 can take on different roles, such as searching for threats, sharing intelligence, deploying troops or attacking the enemy.
