KONGSBERG, Norway -- Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has been assigned by Norwegian Defence Materiel Agency to upgrade the combat system on the Royal Norwegian Navy’s Skjold Class, to contribute to the life extension. The contract amount is NOK267 million. The Skjold Class is a vital asset for the Navy and in addition to a ship technical modernization, the combat system will be upgraded with a similar system that is in operation on the Nansen Class today.

"When the Skjold class corvettes are to be upgraded with life extension technology, it is crucial to change the combat system on board to ensure combat capability during their lifetime. The upgrade mainly consists of a new combat management system, which is coordinated with the Nansen class frigates. We will also do a updating of tactical data links and other functions in the combat system," saids Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace division director Kjetil Reiten Myhra.

ORNSKOLDSVIK, Sweden -- The Slovak government has picked a joint bid by the government of Sweden and BAE Systems Hagglunds offering the CV90 platform to meet its tracked infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) requirement. This project involves procurement of 152 tracked IFVs at the cost of EUR1.7 billion ($1.84 billion). Bids for this proiject involve the Polish-built Borsuk, Rheinmetall's KF41 Lynx, the CV90 from Sweden's BAE Systems Hagglunds, and the GDELS ASCOD 2.

The CV90 placed first and second in two different turret variants when measured against all requirements for the program.

With the selection the two sides will now enter into negotiations with the aim of securing finalization of a deal before year-end.

The acquisition will allow the Slovak Armed Forces to retire their Soviet-era BMP-1 and BMP-2 IFVs and enable the military to begin the process of revamping and modernizing its mechanized mobility capability.

Earlier in March the Slovak Defense Ministry announced that Patria's AMVXP (Export) model had won its competition to provide 76 vehicles to meet a 8x8 Wheeled Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV) requirement.

MOSCOW -- Russia's missile inventory is under pressure to meet the demands of its military operation in Ukraine. Moscow continues to expend tactical missiles in large numbers.

With progress on the ground slowed by Ukrainian resistance, Moscow has increased its use of tactical missile systems. Russian forces are pounding Ukrainian forces defending the cities of Lyschansak and Severodonetsk.

In its attacks, Russia's use of older weapons could be a possible sign of a dwindling inventory. The new AS-23A Kodiak, also known as the Kh-101, has been used in combat, along with the older AS-4 Kitchen (Kh-29).
