€124 Million to Supply Missiles for Littoral Combat Ships
Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has been awarded a contract valued at €124 million to supply the Royal Malaysian Navy with Naval Strike Missiles (NSM) to equip the service’s six new Littoral Combat Ships.
Boustead Naval Shipyard is building the ships based on Naval Group’s GOWIND-class design. This contract is a follow-on to the agreement announced 9 April 2015 for NSM shipboard equipment. The NSM will be deck mounted and integrated to the SETIS combat management system provided by Naval Group.
“This contract provides the Royal Malaysian Navy with an important surface-to-surface-missile capability and confirms NSM’s very strong position in the international market. NSM is currently chosen by Norway, Poland, Germany and Malaysia,“ commented Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace President, Eirik Lie.
