Upgraded Serbian howitzer "Nora" was fired before testing in the USA

51

As part of the selection of a self-propelled artillery unit for the American army, organized by the Pentagon, which began in August last year, a test cycle of the Nora B-52 M21 howitzer, manufactured in Serbia, will take place in the United States in the near future. Upgraded Serbian self-propelled howitzer "Nora" was fired before testing in the United States.


This is reported by the Polish portal Defense 24.

To participate in the tests, manufacturers of 155 mm caliber artillery systems on a wheeled chassis will arrive at the test site. All applicants will have to pre-pass tests with the participation of US military personnel. As a result, a system will be selected that will go into service with the American army.

The Nora B-52 M21 is the latest version of the Serbian Nora family of self-propelled howitzers, developed by the Military Technical Institute of Belgrade and manufactured at the Complex Combat Systems plant, which is part of the Yugoimport concern. The system is armed with a 155 mm gun and a barrel length equal to 52 calibers. The self-propelled gun meets NATO standards, although a 152 mm cannon can also be installed on it. The rate of fire of the howitzer is six rounds per minute, and the effective range of fire is 25 kilometers for standard ammunition and 41 kilometers for jet ammunition.

During the modernization, among other things, the original chassis, based on the Russian KamAZ, was replaced by a German MAN, and an automatic firing system was introduced.

    This is some kind of surrealism. Serbs decided to supply the USA with their artillery?

      What's the problem? What fought? So everybody in Europe fought everybody at one time. Britain also fought with the United States, so their BAE 3 is the size of the contractor for the Yankees. You can't live in the past, you need to move forward.

      And the Serbs are great, they have preserved and are promoting their military-industrial complex. Many interesting, advanced weapons and equipment. Even if they do not win this competition, they will make a good advertisement for themselves.

          Serbia Bought Russian ZRPK "Pantsir-S". For real money. No one with an "outstretched hand" did not apply. I understand that you are not a Slav and the Serbs are not your brothers. I understand that you have psychiatric deviations. But I am disgusted with such an appeal to a strong people, whom Russia has betrayed and allowed to be bombed. Even after that, they retained their love for Russia and the Russians.
          Serbia is not a rich country and cannot turn up its nose at real money. It does not belong to any blocs and does not fight with anyone. Therefore, it can buy and sell weapons to everyone. If you want not to sell or buy weapons to NATO countries, offer an alternative.

          I don't care about personal attacks. You are no one and no way to call you. More precisely, a lot like Ali / PPSh / Dred. Is there any other Nick? You are thrown out of here as unnecessary garbage, then you come back here. Who are you after that?

            It's funny, of course - the minuses were made on the sly, and no one objected to anything about the case.

            I'm wondering what, in the opinion of the turbopatriots, the Serbs should do?
            Sit and wait for manna from heaven or death from hunger, not trading on principle with the damned Americans? Or how?

      Something I did not notice that the United States declared war on Serbia.

      Moreover, the Serbs have signed the Status of Forces Agreement - they are, in fact, a member of the NATO bloc.

      Why such vivid metaphors, comrade?

      Comrade Barberry, let's talk in an adult way, since the Serbs insult you too?

      Here you are all lamenting that the Slav brothers are so-and-so, even to trade in arms with the Americans have sunk. But what is the root cause of this?

      They have no alternative. And no one gave them an alternative - including us.

      As Marx used to say, "politics is the quintessence of economics." And here this principle works in absolutely the same way as elsewhere.

      What kind of "brotherhood" and "loyalty" can we talk about if there is no economic motive behind it? Russia from its arms market even squeezes out its closest and last ally in the person of Belarus and the MZKT - it's scary to stutter about some Serbian self-propelled guns here. Who is Serbia's economy tied to? Right, to the European Union. Who gave them money after the war? That's right, American funds.

      Brothers-Slavs here, consider, did not stand in any way.

      For that matter, we don't even develop cultural ties with them.

    Serbia not rich country и can't turn up his nose at real money. It does not belong to any blocs and does not fight with anyone. buy and sell weapons to everyone. If a want what would not sell or buy weapons to countries NATO propose alternative.

    OgnennyiKotik - you are an illiterate Internet troll from Ukraine, who does not know the Russian language at all, what does the number of errors in your utterance, which I noted... You, from time to time, write nonsense, not knowing at all and not understanding those on VO. I, unlike you, are Russian, and Russian, and I was born in Murmansk (Russia). And yours
    wild saying: "You can't live in the past, you need to move forward." Says that you are not far off in your development, praising Bandera and forgetting about the exploits of their fathers. You here repeatedly write spam from the Internet and spit on Russian equipment, and then write your comments at the end of the discussions, so that you will not get any cons, the forum users have figured out you.
    Yesterday they wrote their ignorant nonsense about the Russian radar "Resonance - N", completely ignorant of the topic, and what AWACS is. Therefore, you need to blame VO, not me.
    Learn the great Russian Language, not Russian, but Slav (Ukrainian). Your numerous mistakes speak volumes about your ignorance, not to mention the technical issues discussed at VO!

      No, there are many factors for losing in the competition, not all of them relate to real characteristics. The very fact, the assumptions before full-scale tests (especially of Serbian weapons) suggests that the ACS is advanced.

          Not. This suggests that the Army is buying the best weapons. And he holds contests to find out. And he does not buy outright rubbish, only because it is domestic, like some other armies.
          Development of the USA. From a series of cheap and cheerful. Obviously airmobile. Although the howitzer itself is super complicated.

          One of the best wheeled SPGs from BAE. From the series expensive and super duper.


          There is also a variant of a 105 mm howitzer on a light chassis.

            Conducts contests ... but if the domestic manufacturer really needs it, then it does not buy from the winners of the competition :)

    Serbs are certainly great. But they were genocidal just 20 years ago. They destroyed a huge and powerful country. Even the generation has not changed. And then the same generals who may have suffered from NATO aviation, their families, who died. Are they going to the USA today, to the country that bombed them, in order to sell them weapons? This is the whole sur.
