Saab is listed by SIPRI as being the world’s 30th largest arms company, with military equipment comprising 83% of its sales.

A Saab press release for DefExpo India 2018 describes its military activities: “From the Gripen multi-role fighter to advanced missile systems and ground combat weapons, Saab develops and delivers the full spectrum of capabilities needed to deliver national defence and security.”

Saab originated and is based in Sweden and the bulk of its manufacturing is still carried out there (Saab Annual Report 2017, p.140).


CAAT would not exist without its supporters. Each new supporter helps us strengthen our call for an end to the international arms trade.
