Norway provides Ukraine with two NASAMS air defense missile systems
Norway to transfer two NASAMS ground-based air defence systems to Ukraine in cooperation with the United States
This was reported on the website of the Norwegian government.
In cooperation with the United States, Norway will provide Ukraine with two NASAMS air defense systems. They will arrive in addition to the two firing units provided by the United States last fall. NASAMS should significantly improve Ukraine's ability to defend cities and critical infrastructure from Russian missile attacks. Norway will also train Ukrainian personnel to maintain and operate the systems.
"Ukraine has a critical need to defend itself against missile attacks, and Norway will assist," said Norwegian Defense Minister Bjørn Arild Gram, who visited Kyiv on Friday, March 10.
Gram added that Norway has provided significant assistance to Ukraine after Russia's full-scale invasion and will continue to do so.
Reference. One NASAMS system has three launchers, each with up to six missiles. NASAMS have American radar and can shoot at 72 targets simultaneously, according to Army Recognition. These systems most commonly use AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles, which can fire at a distance of up to 40 km and at an altitude of up to 14 km.
