Artillery: January 9, 2001


Sweden is looking for 60 new self-propelled medium artillery pieces, and has arranged to lease some German PzH-2000 and British Braveheart guns for testing. They will also test the existing Swedish BandKanone-1A (first fielded in 1966), and two new 6x6 wheeled guns developed by Bofors, with 155mm and 120mm ordnance. In theory, a winner would be picked in 2003, modified to meet Swedish requirements and tested again, with production lasting from 2006 through 2011.--Stephen V Cole
