Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV) has asked Saab to equip its Gripen C/D jets with LITENING 5 target designator pods.

The order is valued at SEK 390 million (nearly $37 million).

LITENING 5 is used in the precision designation of targets through laser targeting and target tracking. FMV previously ordered this version of LDP for Gripen E, and are also now integrated on Gripen C/D. This order comprises the additional pods, maintenance and spare parts.

The pods and maintenance capabilities will be delivered to FMV in 2026.
