Norway plans to send new air defense systems to Ukraine to replace the destroyed ones


The Norwegian Ministry of Defense announced that it plans to transfer new NASAMS air defense systems to Kyiv for a total amount of NOK 3,45 billion (more than $300 million).


The package will include 10 launchers and four fire control centers, the defense ministry said. Oslo added that new air defense systems will replace the NASAMS air defense systems destroyed by this time and emphasized their intention to continue to support Ukraine “as long as it is necessary.”

The government is submitting an initiative to the Norwegian parliament to order 10 more launchers and four NASAMS air defense fire control centers from Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace. This will be in addition to replenishing equipment donated to Ukraine

– says a press release from the Norwegian Ministry of Defense.

According to estimates, since the beginning of the special military operation, the Scandinavian country has sent up to 9 NASAMS complexes to Kyiv. During this time, the bulk of these systems were destroyed. According to reports from the Russian Ministry of Defense, in February of this year alone, four NASAMS air defense missile systems were hit.

The Polish newspaper Mysl Polska wrote about the destruction of two more complexes entirely in early January. According to the publication, the position areas of these air defense systems near Kiev were successfully hit by Kh-47M Kinzhal hypersonic missiles.

    Let them put at least 100! They'll shake off their fat from the fund. But we will still destroy everything!

    I remember our de-Stalinizer - the bear told us how many thousands of square miles of sea with fish stocks and goods were written off to the Norwegians at the bottom. Now here is the main Twitter patriot - people are growing up! And they don't drown.

      I remember - think and say whatever you want. Where have you seen a cat that was interested in what mice had to say about it?

    The cost of weapons supplied by Norway should be included in the list of debts and reparations that will be paid to Russia by the coalition countries that provided assistance to Ukraine after the latter’s capitulation. You have to pay for everything.
    Russia will definitely come for debts, including Norwegian ones.
    Shit - you will answer.

      Take Svalbard? I’m afraid that our leaders will have a long and difficult time “fitting back” into all the structures from which they were kicked out...
