Excalibur to Artillery 13 April, 2020

Guided artillery ammunition stands out with its features such as precise strike capability at long ranges and thus minimizing possible side effects.

The Netherlands supplies guided artillery rounds. In the statement from the United States, the country was approved for the sale of 199 M982AI Excalibur Increment IB for army use. The possible total cost was announced as 40.55 million USD.

Excalibur, which can be fired from different artillery systems, is also compatible with PzH2000 self-propelled howitzer in the Royal Netherlands Army inventory. The projectile, which can reach 50 kilometres effective range when fired from a 52-calibre barrel, offers high precision striking possibilities, including moving targets.
