Defense and security company Saab and the Polish Navy have conducted a successful commissioning and sea acceptance tests of the RBS15 Mk3 missile on board the Orkan-class fast attack craft. The tests were part of Saab’s 2006 contract with Poland for the delivery of RBS15 Mk3 missiles, and their installation on the Orkan-class ships.
The tests, with lead-vessel-in-class Orkan, validated all the ship’s interfaces with the necessary power, combat management and navigation systems. Testing included a simulated missile firing exercise, and concluded with sea trials when the ship carried its full complement of eight missiles. The customer has now demonstrated its ability to equip and operate these vessels with their maximum missile load.
