US-based Boeing has announced the successful test firing of the 155mm hypersonic artillery projectile as part of the long-range artillery project.

Developed in cooperation with the Norwegian company Nammo, the projectile which is fired from a 155 mm cannon, will use a hypersonic engine and has a range of 120 -150 km.
