|Includes three M109 self-propelled guns and two Unit cards.
The excellence of the M109 self-propelled howitzer is evidenced by the fact that it is used by every Western army on NATO’s Central Front apart from the French.
|Since its inception in 1949, NATO has been a community of free nations brought together with a common goal, to defend the freedom of Western Europe and North America. To do this Canada, France and the Netherlands deploy armoured and mechanised forces in West Germany.|
|The Canadians began fielding the M109 self-propelled howitzer in 1968. The Royal Canadian Horse Artillery, which provided the artillery support for 4 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group, fielded four batteries of six M109.|
|Like many nations in NATO, the Royal Netherlands Army fields the American M109 self-propelled 155mm howitzer to provide their artillery support. A Veldartillerie Batterij (Field Artillery Battery) consists of a command group, six M109A2 or A3 self-propelled 155mm howitzers, and an ammunition group. In a war situation, a field artillery battalion, with three field batteries, is attached to each armoured infantry or armoured brigade.|
