The Norwegian weapons factory feels unfairly suspended, but admits that they make components for cluster weapons.

New Age's cluster munitions unveiling on Christmas Eve attracted attention. Talley Defense Systems, the factory Nammo bought before Christmas in the USA, is involved in cluster munitions production in several ways. On TV 2, Minister of Trade and Industry Dag Terje Andersen said that he had asked the group management in Nammo for an explanation.

Nammo eventually sent out a press release in which the company denies the allegations, claiming Talley does not manufacture components used specifically in cluster weapons. But how can it be that the company markets its own technology for four different cluster weapon systems on its website?

- What Talley produces for the artillery shell M864, is an incendiary charge that increases its range, says production director Johs Norheim in Nammo.

- How can you then claim that no components are made for cluster munitions? This is a cluster munition.

- Because this incendiary charge can be used in other artillery shells as well.

- But Talley markets it specifically for use in the M864, among other things?

- Yes, they do so far, Norheim admits.

He emphasizes that Nammo also makes such incendiary charges for artillery ammunition. This is exported to Sweden and Germany, among other places. Nammo otherwise reacts to the other three weapon systems Ny Tid. . .
