Green Archer

Green Archer was a mortar locating radar.

The M113 vehicle, which is a special Danish/German version, is mounted with a British radar system made by EMI, capable of locating positions of mortars up to 30 km. The exhaust-system has been altered to prevent interference with the radar. 4-man crew.

The system is currently being replaced by a swedish system named ARTHUR (ARTillery HUnting Radar). In Germany it was replaced by Cobra.
