Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) Howitzer

The Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) Cannon is an integral part of the U.S. Army's Future Combat Systems (FCS) Program and one of eight Manned Ground Vehicles (MGV) being developed for FCS.

Designed and built by BAE Systems in partnership with General Dynamics, Land Systems and the FCS Lead System Integrator team of Boeing and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) the NLOS Cannon is a fully automated, 38-caliber, self-propelled howitzer.

Combat experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated that cannon artillery remains the most responsive, 24-hour, all-weather fire support for ground forces. As the Army transitions to a Modular Force structure, the NLOS Cannon will give Soldiers unprecedented firepower, enabling fewer systems to achieve more on the battlefield. The revolutionary capabilities of the NLOS Cannon will help to ensure the U.S. Army remains the most dominant and responsive land force in the world.
