Finland och Sverige köper artilleriammunition tillsammans
Finland and Sweden have agreed upon an arrangement to jointly procure long-range ammunition from a strategic partner of the Finnish Defence Forces, aerospace and defence company Nammo Lapua.
Procurement cooperation makes procurement easier and it saves time during the preparation and reception phases. The joint procurement is expected to lower production costs, which means cost savings for the end customer. It will create Nordic security of supply and makes offering assistance between the countries easier in the future.
With the signed executive document Finland and Sweden will create the prerequisites for the joint procurement of long-range ammunition. The document was signed on the 29th of June 2022, and for Finland, it was signed by the Chief of the Defence Forces Logistics Command, Major General (Eng.) Kari Renko with the authorisation of the Minister of Defence, and for Sweden, by the Director of Land Systems at the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV), Brigadier General Mikael Frisell.
