Defence and security company Saab Bofors Dynamics Switzerland Ltd (SBDS) has
signed two contracts for initial deliveries of MAPAM (Mortar Anti Personnel

The order, which was signed in 2012, has a total value of MSEK 11.2 and
comprises production and delivery of MAPAM 60mm ER (extended range) with
proximity fuze and MAPAM 81mm standard configuration.

are completely new on the market. Within the past only standard 60mm has been
