RIGA - The National Armed Forces will make another round of purchases for Swedish-made anti-tank systems AT4, LETA was told by the Defense Ministry.

The ministry emphasizes that the purchase of the systems, produced by Saab Dynamics AB, will strengthen Latvia's anti-tank capabilities.

Latvia will receive the AT4 weapons systems in 2021.

"By supplementing the Latvian army's anti-tank weaponry within the framework of Latvian-Swedish military cooperation, any potential adversary should expect that a significant number of their tanks could be successfully destroyed. Thus we are improving the deterrence capabilities of the whole Baltic region,'' Defense Minister Artis Pabriks (For Development) points out.
