Danish Armed Forces Conduct Successful Test of Israeli-Made PULS Rocket System

The Danish Armed Forces have successfully tested their newly acquired Israeli-made PULS (Precise & Universal Launching System) rocket launcher for the first time on Danish soil. The test firing occurred at the Oksbøl Shooting and Training Range, where the rocket was launched approximately 10 kilometers into the North Sea. The test, which was conducted without an explosive payload, concluded as planned, marking a significant milestone in the integration of the PULS system into the Danish Army. The comprehensive testing, which took place throughout the day, aimed to evaluate noise levels and exhaust gases emitted by the system. The Danish Artillery Regiment, Defence Maintenance Service, Elbit Systems, and DALO worked closely together to achieve this outcome.

Elbit Systems, the Israeli defense company supplying the PULS system, has two major contracts with Denmark. The first contract, worth USD 119 million, involves the supply of a battalion’s worth of ATMOS (Autonomous Truck Mounted Howitzer) 155mm/52 caliber truck-mounted howitzer systems, to be delivered over two years. The second contract, valued at USD 133 million, covers the delivery of two batteries of PULS artillery rocket-launcher systems, including a package of rockets and missiles, over a three-year period. Since the arrival of the PULS system in Denmark about a year ago, Danish soldiers and DALO technicians have been rigorously working with Elbit Systems to ensure its seamless integration.

The PULS, initially known as the Lynx MRL, is a multiple rocket launcher developed by Israel Military Industries, now part of Elbit Systems following its acquisition in 2018. The upgraded version of Lynx, known as PULS, was introduced into the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in 2020 under the name Lahav. The system, which played a role in the Israel–Hamas conflict in February 2024, is now operational and mounted on Tatra 815-7 Force 6×6 trucks. Elbit Systems’ PULS launcher supports both free-flying and precision-guided rockets and missiles, with ranges spanning from 12km to 300km. Its adaptable design allows for integration with existing wheeled and tracked platforms, reducing maintenance and training costs.

The multiple rocket launcher system can be configured to carry various rockets in two sealed pod containers: 36 (2 pods × 18 rockets each) 122mm Grad rockets; or 26 (2×13) 160mm LAR-160 or ACCULAR rockets; or eight (2×4) 306mm EXTRA rockets; two (2×1) 330mm Delilah missiles or four (2×2) 370mm Predator Hawk tactical ballistic missiles. The PULS also able to carry and launch SkyStriker loitering munitions, which is a unique feature among MLRS systems. The SkyStriker drones have a range over 100 km and 6 drones are packed into a single container according to a video published by Elbit Systems. The drone can engage moving targets unlike the other missiles of the PULS system, but it can also return and land after doing reconnaissance and can be relaunched again.
