Small Arms Ammunition & Weapon Storage

NAMSA (NATO Procurement Agency) were tasked to provide NATO Forces with mobile containerised storage that could be included with NATO deployments to provide instant weapon and ammunition storage for NATO forces.


26 shipping containers were required to provide storage for all forces at four deployments simultaneously. Containers to be transportable by air and delivered via DROPS system. It was not specified which weapon the forces would be using as each NATO force uses different equipment.


FWS Europe won the tender and in subsequently passed the evaluation tests for NATO approval (the only weapon storage equipment to have done so). All equipment was manufactured, delivered and installed by an FWS team at NATO Southern Operational Centre in Taranto, Italy.
