Ukraine wants the Swedish Archer system

Published August 30, 2022 at 10:53 am

– The best thing Sweden can do for our defense in the near future is to give us the famous, self-propelled artillery system Archer, said Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

Archer is manufactured by Bofors for the Swedish army and consists of a howitzer piece mounted on a Volvo dump truck.

The system is extremely fast-moving and can fire projectiles five miles away, then fold up and move on before the projectile hits the target. This makes it very difficult for an enemy to return fire in time to knock out the system.

Sweden currently has 48 Archer plays. It will soon be expanded to 72.
