Default ARCHER mobile artillery system

im pretty impressed with the system that has been developed for Sweden and Norway!

YouTube Video


they go into service with the Norwegians this year and as i will serve in the artillery company i will surely see them alot

it certainly has a edge above the rest of the mobile arty systems in service around the world with its fast Shoot and Scoot speed of 30second deploy/undeploy

Not a bad system. Any word of the cost and how many each country will purchase?

I remember seeing these several years ago at a conference, good to hear they are going into service soon. Can't deny BAE is badass.

Enjoy your year there, it's what you make of it. I sure as hell had a great time
Though I doubt you'll see the Archer other than when the Swedes show up with the ones they're borrowing from BAE

Witnessed a small demo of it, and participated in a briefieng about it for some Swedish and Canadian generals and other officers, and the Defense Minister of Norway, and some other high up in the Norwegian Armed Forces. It seems like a great system, and the officers in the ArtyBn sure looks forward to getting it.
The demo really showed how quickly it can set up, though it did not fire. They even gave one of the Canadian officers a lightning course in setting it up, like 3 minutes max, and he managed to set it up, ready to fire. Mighty impressive.
And it massive up close, vids don't do it justice

It kinda looks like the articulated dump trucks they use in the mines around here, only with a big Howitzer on the back and a bit of armour for the cabin :P

Anyone know if they developed the chassis from scratch, or used something else?

you are spot on, they modified the Volvo A30D chassis:
