The Danish Army tested its newly acquired Israeli-made PULS (Precise & Universal Launching System) rocket launcher for the first time on Danish soil last week. The Danish Ministry of Defense reported that the test firing occurred at the Oksbøl Shooting and Training Range, with the rocket launched approximately 10 kilometers into the North Sea. The test, conducted without an explosive payload, concluded as planned, marking a significant milestone in integrating the PULS system into the Danish Army. The comprehensive testing, conducted throughout the day, aimed to evaluate the system's noise levels and exhaust gas emissions.

Preparations for this event spanned several months. The first PULS systems arrived in Denmark about a year ago. Since then, soldiers from the Army and technicians from the Defense Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) have collaborated closely with Elbit's technicians to integrate the PULS system into the Danish Army.

Brigadier General Henrik Lyhne, Deputy Commander of the Army, noted that the system works as intended and produces a significant sound. He mentioned that the Army had been missing such a system, which now provides increased firepower and range. He also highlighted the system's flexibility, capable of firing various types of missiles.

The Danish Army purchased two batteries of PULS launchers (eight launchers in total) from Elbit for $133 million, including rockets and missiles. All the launchers have been delivered, and they are expected to be operational by 2026.
