Fallout Re: SP and SPAA Developments

In response to another thread, time for some U.S. arty.
PALIDAN M109A6/1991/US, Israel and Taiwan/C5/155mm L39 w/39Rs and 12.7mm w/500Rs.
A very reliable and battle proven system. I understand all U.S. units either are or almost (End of this year.) completely updated to the M109A6 PIM standard that was first fielded
in 2007. and

Next the CRUSADER highly advanced artillery system that died politically, by cost overruns and not meeting expectations. Technical advancements lead to the M109A6 PIM and the
XM1203 NLOS-C which should be fielded between 2012 and 2014.
CRUSADER/US/PFD 2008/C3/155mm w/49Rs. and

And finally the XM1203 NLOS-C the next generation of U.S. artillery I'll let the source and R. Lee Ermey of History Channels Lock N Load do the talking here.
XM1203 NLOS-C/2012-2014/US/C3/155mm L38 w/24Rs.
Will have dedicated ammo unit M992 as the ARCHER system has as fielded (See earlier post on ARCHER.).

(Also does an overview of the PALADIN as a lead into the
XM1203 NLOS-C.)
