Some of the fairly new hardware of the Norwegian Artillery:
NM201 Ildlederpanservogn - M113F3 based vehicle for artillery forward observers. This variant is fitted with the VINTAQS observation system on a 2m mast. It consists of a thermal camera, VingRange laser range finder, VingEye CCD-camera and GPS. In the future, the vehicle is likely to be replaced by a CV90 based alternative.
M109A3GNM - 14 guns have been upgraded to modern standards, including new intercom and new navigation and positioning equipment. The vehicle is set to be replaced by 24 guns of the new Archer Artillery System, which Norway has ordered.

A video made by the conscripts who served the Norwegian Army's 2nd Battalion, Anti-Armour Platoon. They were the first ever conscripts in the Norwegian Army to be officially issued the Javelin.
It's pretty good vid, showing some of the things they did during their year as conscripts.

I wonder who will buy them.
I dont think any Air Force is going to say they got too many C130's.... incredible versatile aircraft.
Probably not. But, i think the reason why we're gonna sell'em. Is that we have bought new transport-aircrafts.
