On Wednesday, the twelve member countries of the Northern Group held a meeting aboard the British aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, which is anchored at the Akershus wharf in Oslo. In this regard, the defense ministers of Great Britain and Norway were invited to a press conference.
There, Norwegian Defense Minister Bjørn Arild Gram (Sp) stated that the United Kingdom would buy a “Naval Strike Missile” (NSM) type of naval attack missile from the Kongsberg Group and Norway.
This modern and efficient missile will undoubtedly increase the combat power of the British Navy and strengthen our collective security, Gram said at a news conference with his British counterpart, Ben Wallace.
– Those are natural choices, and they are also the ones we consider the best in the world. I’m looking forward to it being launched onto our ship. It gives us new strength and is a reminder to our adversaries that Britain will always invest in technology to keep us ahead of them, Wallace said of the missiles.
Technical Weekly writes that for several months there have been strong indications that the UK will become Kongsberg Gruppen’s tenth purchaser of this missile.
Group North consists of the Netherlands, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Great Britain, Sweden and Germany. The North Group is led by the British.
