As the first Chamber notified, the Senate adopted on Monday the bill on “Indirect fire support capabilities” related to the “Long-range Multiple Launch Rocket System” procurement programme.
“The procurement of long-range multiple launch rocket systems ensures the needed capability to carry out high-intensity military operations and to ensure general support for the operations carried out by the Land Forces Group,” reads the Senate Defence Committee’s report.
The bill awards to the U.S. Government the state contract for the purchase of three battalions of 18 launchers each, including but not limited to ammunition, command and control elements, sensors, logistic support, maintenance, cryptographic and special equipment, as well as the training of personnel at all required levels.
The procurement will be financed from the budget of the Ministry of Defence.
“To accomplish and maintain the mentioned capabilities, the MoD is sending servicemen to carry out missions abroad in line with the contracts signed,” the bill reads.
The bill on the procurement of multiple launch rocket systems was tabled by the Government and was adopted unanimously.
