Boeing and Nammo have recently collaborated on a project that promises to redefine the capabilities of artillery systems.
The partnership, aimed at developing a Ramjet 155 munition, has resulted in a record-breaking test of the projectile’s range. While the precise range of this artillery shell remains classified, it is known that the ramjet-powered munition can potentially strike targets at distances exceeding 70 kilometers (43.5 miles).
Nammo goes even further, suggesting that the munition might be capable of hitting targets at an astonishing 150 kilometers (93 miles), depending on the delivery platform.
A Step Forward in Artillery Technology
The recent test, conducted with a 58-caliber Extended Range Cannon Artillery (ERCA), saw the Ramjet 155 munition making history by setting the record for the longest indirect fire test of a ramjet-powered artillery projectile. This milestone marks a significant leap in the development of long-range precision artillery systems.
