Kongsberg will supply the Lithuanian Ministry of Defence with a new Norwegian Advanced Surface to Air Missile System (NASAMS) air defence system under a $128 million contract announced on 26 October.

Lithuania originally opted to procure NASAMS in October 2016. This contract includes additional equipment, training and integrated logistics support, as well as refurbishment and integration of government supplied components for a complete NASAMS system.

Eirik Lie, president, Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace, said: ‘We are pleased that the Lithuanian armed forces has chosen NASAMS. The weapon produced by Kongsberg and Raytheon, is the most sold air defence system in NATO in recent years, and will be the backbone air defence system for many nations in decades to come.’
