    Think of it this way. By the time serbia gets theres in 2010 they should have kinks already taken care of also. Also with the world demand, that can only continue to strengthen the production line.

    Is this second picture prototype or other simpler variant? Also is it mounted on Orkan MLRS body or am I wrong?
    Also does it use standard M84 152mm howitzer or it was converted to 155mm? This is further modification of older NORA-B variant or completely new developmant?

    that is a stabilising plow, same thing as you would see in civilian cherry pickers or cranes . an artillery piece on a truck chassi needs to be stabilised this way, only tracked artillery like paladins dont need this .

    AFAIK the one with the autoloader on the KAMAZ truck is to be exported, to Malaysia, if I remember correctly.

    Yeah, i konw what it is. The Nora has 4 "feet", the Cesar just one on the back. Does that mean if you wand to change shooting direction you need to move the whole truck?

    With auto-loader.Version without auto-loader is named just Nora B-52,version with auto-loader is named Nora B-52K1.Kamaz truck is for export version,if Serbian army ever get Nora it will likely use domestic produced FAP trucks.

    Is this second picture prototype or other simpler variant? Also is it mounted on Orkan MLRS body or am I wrong?

    First prototype or variant of Nora is mounted on FAP 2832 truck.Don`t mix M-84 and B-52 Nora.Nora means -Novo oružje artiljerije-New weapon of artyliery.Poeple who made B-52 Nora were in developing M-84 Nora so you can call it as continuation but far advanced.

    The 155mm gun is actually based on the M-46 (130mm).

    Truck mounted artillery has some distinct advantages over conventional tracked SP Artillery.

    Greater mobility - Faster deployment (a lot easier to deploy by air/sea)
    Reduced cost and ease of production
    Easier maintenance

    The obvious disadvantage being much reduced protection for the crew

    ------------------------------

    Some technical info:

    Total mass = 28 t

    The Nora can travel at a maximum speed of 80-100km/h on paved roads and 25km/h on rough tracks. Has good cross country mobility, including the ability to cross soft ground and some water obstacles.

    Max range:

    1. with standard projectile -> 20 km
    2. with M-86 ERFB shell -> 38 km
    3. with M-87 ERFB-B shell -> 41 km

    Max Rate of Fire: 6 per min

    Field of Fire ( °):

    horizontal: 60
    vertical: -3 / +65 (+20 / +65 when firing over cabin)

    ................................

    Testing of early prototype
