The Norwegian government has announced that the development of the next-generation strike missile has kicked off in cooperation with Germany and Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace as the lead industrial partner.

Kongsberg has developed today’s Naval Strike Missile (NSM) and will take the lead role in developing the new naval strike missile, which will complement the NSM, according to a statement. 

The new missile will be known as SuperSonic Strike Missile (3SM) Tyrfing and is to be ready in 2035. 

Today’s NSM was developed in the early 2000s and delivered to the Norwegian Armed Forces from 2011 to 2015. To date, the missile has been selected by 13 countries. 

The development of the new missile is a joint venture of Norway and Germany and is planned to be deployed on naval vessels in both countries.

The government is proposing to initiate and complete the initial design phase of the project, before returning to the Norwegian Parliament with a recommendation to continue the project.
