Press Release, Kongsberg, 28 June 2023: Lithuania’s Ministry of Defence has announced it is purchasing two medium-range NASAMS missile launchers for donation to Ukraine. The country’s Defence Material Agency signed a contract with Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace.

“Upgraded NASAMS missile launch systems are being purchased, which will be fully prepared so that the Ukrainian Army can integrate them into existing fire control units, thereby supplementing and expanding the operational capacity of the Norwegian and US-donated NASAMS systems currently in use in Ukraine,” said Arvydas Anušauskas, Lithuania’s Minister of National Defence, in a statement.

The Norwegian Ministry of Defence will make additional contributions by donating NASAMS system support equipment. The NASAMS Air Defence Systems are already in use by the Lithuanian Army.
