Hungary has inaugurated two sub-units of the Norwegian Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) at a military base in Gyor. The NASAMS system provides high-altitude medium-range capabilities and is operated with US-made AMRAAM missiles. This enables the formation of a network of command positions. Hungary is the first NATO country to use NASAMS extended-range AMRAAM missiles. The purchase of NASAMS was made under cooperation between the Hungarian and Norwegian governments, with the participation of the US government and defence contractor Raytheon. Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace, the company that developed NASAMS, will supply another four sub-units and technical equipment for a smaller backup unit by next summer.
