Saab shortlisted for Finnish Squadron 2020 Program

Finland shortlisted Saab as a Combat System provider for the Finnish Squadron 2020 program.

The potential contract would have Saab provide and integrate the Finnish Navy’s four new Pohjanmaa Class external link corvettes within the Squadron 2020 program. The program is a project by the Finnish Navy.

Its aim is to replace the seven vessels the Navy will decommission. Four modern corvettes will be procured to replace the vessels to be decommissioned.

All of the Finnish Navy’s current vessels feature at least one system from Saab, with the majority of vessels operating several systems from Saab.

According to the company, Saab has not yet signed any contract or received an order relating to Squadron 2020.
