The British Army has ordered the ARTHUR (Artillery Hunting Radar) from Sweden for use in the counter-battery mission. The British say that ARTHUR meets their requirement to locate any artillery piece firing within 15km of friendly troops within 75 meters. ARTHUR can be carried by a C-130 or slung under a heavy lift helicopter. ARTHUR is designed for use by light and rapid reaction forces such as the airborne and Marine units.--Stephen V Cole
