RBS 15 Mk 3 gets land attack green light

 

14 June 2016

Key Points

  • The RBS 15 Mk 3 anti-ship missile equips the German Navy’s five K 130 corvettes
  • BAAINBw’s K 130 corvette project office has cleared the use of the RBS 15 Mk 3 in its land attack mode

The German Navy has been given clearance to use the Saab/Diehl Defence RBS 15 Mk 3 anti-ship missile in the land attack role following approval from the Bundesamtes für Ausrüstung, Informationstechnik und Nutzung der Bundeswehr’s (BAAINBw’s) K 130 corvette project office on 3 June.

Introduced to German naval service on board the five K 130 corvettes, the RBS 15 Mk 3 is an evolution of the earlier RBS 15 Mk 2, and retains the 200 kg high-explosive blast/pre-fragmented warhead.
