Varsovie lance un appel d’offres pour l’achat de missiles air-air moyenne portée AIM-120 Amraam de Raytheon, des missiles d’entrainement et des bombes air-sol pour ses avions de combat F-16. Cette tendance qui s’ajoute à la volonté de rééquiper les forces terrestres et navales du pays démontre la volonté polonaise de se protéger contre toute velléité militaire Russe.

Nammo Group has delivered an additional AIM-120 advanced medium range air-to-air missile (AMRAAM) rocket motor to Raytheon.


Representing an overall 1,000th AMRAAM rocket to have been delivered to date by Nammo, the newly delivered rocket is scheduled to be installed in an under-production AIM-120C7 missile later this month.


Nammo is supplying motors at the rate of approximately 90 motors a month, after being certified as an AMRAAM rocket motor supplier for Raytheon following a lengthy qualification process in October 2012.


Raytheon Missile Systems AMRAAM programme director Ronald Krebs said the Raytheon-Nammo partnership has been a model of success throughout 2012.


"Raytheon has worked extremely hard to make certain our end-user customers continue to receive AMRAAM missiles on schedule," Krebs said.


Raytheon Missile Systems president Dr Taylor Lawrence said, "The teamwork between Raytheon and Nammo has contributed significantly to our shared success."


Under development since 1998, the AIM-120C-7 is an upgraded variant of the AIM-120C AMRAAM missile, featuring extended range and enhancements in homing capability.


The missile is currently being manufactured for both domestic and foreign military customers.


Powered by a solid-propellant rocket motor, the AIM-120 is a beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) designed for all-weather, day-and-night operations, and represents the US military's standard air intercept missile carried on tactical fighter aircraft.


Having demonstrated operational flexibility in both air-to-air and surface-launch engagement scenarios, the AMRAAM also serves the baseline missile for the Nato-approved national advanced surface-to-air missile system (NASAMS) long range air-defence system.


The combat-proven missile is purchased by 36 countries worldwide, and is currently integrated on the F-16, F-15, F/A-18, F-22, Typhoon, Gripen, Tornado, Harrier and F-4 fighters, while installation is underway on the F-35 Lightning II joint strike fighter (JSF) aircraft.
