On April 4th, the French Navy air defence frigate /Forbin /conducted the first ever European intercept test versus a high supersonic, very low altitude, target. The successful intercept by the PAAMS air defence suite of the ship proved the design by /*eurosam */of state of the art defensive means against the most modern sea skimmer threat.

Two weeks earlier the same system, used by an Italian Navy ship, also demonstrated the PAAMS system capability. PAAMS is deployed by dedicated air defence ships of the British, Italian and French navies.
