Sweden Orders Small-Caliber Ammo From Nammo, Norma

Sweden has contracted ammunition developers Nammo Sweden and Norma Precision to supply small-caliber shells for its armed forces.

The partners will deliver a supply plan to maintain the military’s stockpile and support other requirements for “all levels of readiness, peace, crisis, and war.”

The agreement is valued at 2.8 billion Swedish kronor ($267 million), with work taking place over 2024 and 2025.

“In our endeavor to create long-term conditions, the contracts with the two suppliers also contain options that can enable deliveries until 2030,” Swedish Defence Materiel Administration Weapons and Protection Head Carl-Axel Blomdahl stated.

“It is of course very nice to be able to sign this type of contract with several suppliers in the same area.”

“Achieving a long-term perspective creates good production conditions, and several suppliers contribute in themselves to increased security of supply.”

Recent Ammunition Projects

Sweden signed an agreement with Nammo in January to boost local 155-millimeter ammunition production.

This collaboration builds on Stockholm’s participation in the EU’s Support of Ammunition Production framework to increase bullet and missile development for union members.

Last year, the government awarded Saab a 3 billion Swedish kronor ($286 million) contract to provide an undisclosed amount of shells for the Carl-Gustaff recoilless rifles.

In 2022, Saab received a separate, 10-year order to supply programmable high-explosive ammunition for Carl-Gustaf’s M4 anti-tank variant.
