Norwegian Parliament is proposing to transfer the NASAMS air defense and NSM strike missiles to Ukraine
Some members of the country’s Parliament have expressed an opinion on the transfer of Norwegian weapons to Ukraine.
Militarnyi informs about it.
Norwegian armaments could be changing the course of the war. This is the opinion of Storting member Ola Elvestwen which she expressed in her comment to Guilahall.
“Norway has our NSM anti-ship missile – a modern and powerful weapon that could change the course of the war of Russia against Ukraine. I believe that NSM should be delivered to Ukraine. The same applies to Norway’s leading NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems, which should be delivered to Ukraine to strengthen its air defenses,” he said.
Another Norwegian parliamentarian, Rasmus Hanson, also backed the idea of strengthening Ukraine and providing anti-ship and anti-aircraft defense systems, multiple rocket launchers, and artillery.
NSM – Naval Strike Missile – is an anti-ship medium-range missile. It was developed and designed by the Norwegian company Kongsberg.
The Naval Strike Missile is equipped with a TRI-40 turbojet engine. The maximum launch range is 185 km, and the weight of the warhead is 120 kg. NSM is a subsonic missile and can hit surface and ground targets. It is in service in Norway, Germany, the United States, Poland, and Malaysia.
NASAMS systems are designed by a consortium of the American corporation Raytheon Technologies and the Norwegian group Kongsberg.
The firing range of the NASAMS II model using AIM-120C AMRAAM missiles is up to 25 km, and the range in altitude is up to 14-15 km.
Previously, in his address to the Norwegian Parliament, Volodymyr Zelensky asked to provide Ukraine with NASAMS mobile anti-aircraft missile systems and Harpoon anti-ship missiles.
In addition, Norway handed over 2,000 M72 LAW (Light Anti-Tank Weapon) grenade launchers to Ukraine.
