NORWAY (BNS): The Dutch army’s air-defence artillery has successfully carried out the first ground live-firing exercise of an AMRAAM (Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile) missile from the Norway’s Andøya peninsula.

The army’s air-defence component has been working towards this launch since the introduction of the missile in early 2009.

The AMRAAM missile, which is designed as an air-to-air missile, was tested for its integration as a weapon in the Army's Ground Based Air Defence System.

The 4 meters long AMRAAM missile has covered the medium-high altitude layer at the range of up to 75 km, and hit the target at the speed of 5,000 km/hour, which was far beyond sight.

The AMRAAM has its own radar and can be fired independently to track its target.
