Norway tested cruise missiles called Tomahawks and Calibers by the "younger brothers"

Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang publishes information that the Royal Navy is equipped with medium-range cruise missiles. Previously, such missiles as naval weapons in Norway were not used. The country's defense Ministry has published several test frames of cruise missiles.


Norway tested cruise missiles called Tomahawks and Calibers by the "younger brothers"




So on the night of Monday 30 of May were conducted rocket firing from the Norwegian Corvette "Storm". The target, hidden by Andrfjord rocks, was successfully hit. It is reported that the goal was a fortified control center of a conditional enemy.

Press Service of the Norwegian Navy:
This weapon significantly increases our military might. Our naval forces, having medium-range cruise missiles, are capable of striking forces located on land at a great distance from the coast.


Given the fact that any point in Norway is no more than a few hundred kilometers from the coast, it can be concluded that the kingdom’s navy plans to use a new weapon not at all for the defense of Norway.

From the message of the Norwegian edition:
With a range of more than 200 km, our missiles are now like a modernized younger brother of the American Tomahawks or Russian Calibrov.


New cruise missiles, which are now equipped with ships of the Norwegian Navy, are essentially a modernized version of anti-ship missiles. Naval strike missiledeveloped by the Norwegian company Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace. In addition to Norway itself, such missiles are in service with Poland.

        Management on the marching section of the trajectory is carried out by an inertial control system. The control system allows you to act outside the direct visibility of the target, the rocket can move along a complex pre-programmed path, go around obstacles in the terrain and areas of enemy air defense, attack the target in the most vulnerable sectors. The correction of the flight path of the rocket on the marching section is carried out according to the satellite navigation subsystem GPS and the terrain correction subsystem TERCOM
        The rocket provides for the installation of a new noise-resistant thermal imaging homing head with increased sensitivity and an expanded field of view. According to experts, this GOS will allow you to detect a target even when its thermal field is reduced using a universal water protection system. Autonomous target selection is carried out by comparing the target image from the GOS sensor with standard target image templates stored in the memory of the onboard control system.

      Norway has been producing the Penguin anti-ship missiles for a long time. According to the characteristics of the range, it is weaker than the "Harpoon", but apparently not bad, since the United States buys it. Now the next step has been taken. It doesn't make it easier for us, because it is for European countries. producing weapons, many, plus the United States. And Russia is one and there are no special assistants in such a matter as the development of weapons on the horizon. Is that Belarus ...

      So the Scandinavians have always had a powerful military-industrial complex. Norway, of course, is not as developed as the Swedes, but they are still kept at the world level. For example, the ancestor of this missile, the NSM anti-ship missiles, is recognized by the Americans as the best strike option for their littoral ships, of which many are planned to be built, so the Norwegians hit a solid jackpot overtaking Boeing with their Harpoon ...

      It’s interesting what kind of work is underway to modernize our Caliber. Maybe the range will be increased to modify Caliber missiles for naval targets. And then 300 km versus 2500 km on ground targets is somehow not solid. It would be nice to increase the range of 300 km on sea targets at least threefold . Surely, work is underway to improve the calibres of various modifications, only infa contradictory.

          Say everything correctly ... only I’m talking slightly differently ... now all the RTOs, submarines, corvettes and frigates under construction are equipped with launch mines specifically for Caliber missiles. That is, there is a certain universality. Accordingly, it would be economically and practically more profitable to develop it specifically for this is the case of RCC Caliber with a range of no less than that of Zircon.
          At the same time, no one bothers to put Zircon complexes on larger ships and submarines.
          And about target designation ... so this is a problem that needs to be solved and I'm sure our specialists are already working on it.

    Probably true lovers of Norway minus me, that Norway which licked an ass fascists, that Norway in which the volunteer legion SS "Norway" was created. During the five years of occupation, several thousand Norwegian women gave birth to children from German soldiers as part of a special German program. These mothers were ostracized and humiliated after the war, they were given insulting nicknames, for example, “German whores” Children from these unions were called “German offspring” Your government warmed its asses in London, and ours sat in Moscow, our people died on the fronts of the Great war, while you lick ass licked the Nazis, and now the Americans. You think s / pA nye lovers of the West, gobble up my country? Did not guess, Russia came to the north, Russia came to your world. You just have to die of envy that we have such a people and put a bowler hat on for ourselves stupidly.
