Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Known as the Non-Line of Sight Cannon (NLOS-C). I only just figured out this program was happening. Basically they took what was left of the Crusader program and combined it with the new 155mm/39 M777 gun. To be in service maybe 2010.

    Priority has been on mobility (electric-hybrid drive & band tracks) and transportability at ~20-25t (prototype). The gun has been shortened to 38cal to save weight. Advanced munitions, mobility and GMLRS will probably make up the shortfall.
