Law on acquisition of a multiple launch rocket system, promulgated

President Klaus Iohannis on Friday signed a decree promulgating the implementation of the “Indirect Fire Capabilities” chapter in the “Multiple Launch Long-Range Rocket System” military acquisition programme, the Presidential Administration reports.

The law is said to regulate the achieving of the “Indirect Fire Capability Support” chapter in the “Multiple Launch Long-Range Rocket System” military acquisition programme to help deter aggressions against Romania and articulate an appropriate response to the current and future challenges of the security environment.

“The implementation of the ‘Indirect Fire Capability Support’ in the ‘Multiple Launch Long-Range Rocket System’ acquisition programme is hereby approved by the Government of Romania awarding to the Administration of the United States of America Letter of Offer and Acceptance (LOA) specific of the Foreign Military Sales Program (FMS) for the purchase of three systems with 18 launching devices each, including, but not limited to, ammunition, command, control, sensors, logistic support, maintenance, cryptographic equipment and special arrangements, and staff training at all levels,” the law says.

The funds necessary for the acquisitions will be provided for in the budget of the Ministry of National Defence.
