27th November 2014 - 14:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Nammo has signed new ammunition contracts with the Spanish Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the Norwegian armed forces, and announced a successful live fire demonstration of its 40mm Air Burst ammunition for the US Army.

Under the first contract, announced on 26 November, the company’s Spanish subsidiary, Nammo Palencia, will deliver 12.7mm ammunition to the Spanish MoD. The €3.24 million contract will support the company’s goals of maintaining and developing its business operations in Spain, with production to be carried out at its Palencia facility.

The second contract will see Nammo provide services and supplies to prepare the integration of the 25mm APEX next-generation multi-role ammunition for the Norwegian armed forces’ F-35A aircraft. The company will supply performance test rounds and provide analysis and documentation services. Additionally, the 25 mm TP-T test round with Reduced Ricochet Risk (RRR) will also be prepared for integration.

On 26 November, the Nammo reported that its 40mmx53 HV Air Burst round completed a successful live fire demonstration for the US Army. The ammunition is being offered as a solution for the Anti-Defilade ammunition requirement for the Automatic Grenade Launcher (AGL) Mk19 system. The demonstration, attended by US Army, USMC and SOCOM, included a comprehensive series of successful firings in single shot and burst mode against static targets located at 350m and 500m.

Jan Hasslid, marketing and sales, Nammo, said: ‘We wanted our customers to get a hands-on experience and to know what to expect from our products, the easy integration with fire control systems, the minimal weapon modification, and how they perform in a tactical situation. I am pleased to say that our products performed as expected and we are very satisfied with the results. The response from the audience was extremely positive, confirming the demonstration to be a great success.’
