Subject: UK Light Brigades Artillery
interestedamateur    6/11/2008 5:28:55 AM
Everyone knows by now that the LIMAWS(G) and LIMAWS(R) programmes to give the UK a medium weight artillery capability have been cancelled. What this leaves us with are the AS90's and Light Guns. These are fine weapons and the RA really knows its stuff. However, am I alone in thinking that the artillery in the light brigades is going to be seriously ouranged and outgunned if they should ever come up against opposition with 155mm guns?

There's always GMLRS. That outranges most threats but needs the M270. They have managed to deploy that in support of the units in Afghanistan.
