Norwegian self-propelled howitzers spotted in Ukraine

Turkey’s state-run Anadolu Agency has released photos showing recently received Norwegian M109A3GN 155mm self-propelled howitzers on road in the Kyiv region.

On top of that, a recent video that surfaced on social media shows Ukrainian Soldiers from the 72nd Mechanized Brigade trained on the new M109A3GN 155mm self-propelled howitzers.

The M109A3GN is the Norwegian version of the M109 Self-Propelled Howitzer, designed in the United States in the early 1960s. Continually upgraded and improved, it is still the primary indirect fire support weapon of maneuver brigades of armored and mechanized infantry divisions.

Since the beginning of the war, Norway has supplied Ukraine with 4,000 M72 light anti-tank weapons.
