Successful FSAF Firings


A specific firing campaign, consisting of two single firings from IT and FR HORIZON class ships and of one salvo firing from a UK Navy platform have just been successfully completed in a very short timeframe (one month - May/June 2010). This more than positive event will re-launch the ammunition production which was suspended following some technical issues experienced in 2009, in the frame of the PAAMS qualification trials.

FSAF PD, responsible for the FSAF PAAMS ammunition design, has been involved, in cooperation with Nations' Experts, Industry and PAAMS Programme Office, in the inquiry activities and in the definition of the action plan for recovering the “confidence” in the ammunition as wished by the Nations.
