In February 2013, Nammo started to develop a new family of conventional 155 mm artillery ammunition, specially designed for long range (40 km).

The test was a demonstration for the Swedish Armed Forces, and the rounds were fired from the Swedish Archer Gun System. A total of 32 live rounds were fired, all functioned as intended with a low dispersion in the target – High Precision at Long Distance.

Nammo expects the development contract for the entire 155 mm family to be signed by the Norway Government by August, and the product qualification of IM HE-ER is planned to be completed by Q1 2016.
