Azerbaijan has completed signing an agreement with Serbia on the purchase of 48 self-propelled howitzers Nora B-52NG of 155 mm calibre, Azernews reports.

World Defence News reports that the deal worth $340 million is part of the modernization strategy of the Azerbaijani army.

The howitzers were developed by Serbian defence company Yugoimport, but are compatible with standard NATO ammunition. The projectiles with improved aerodynamics can be fired at a range of more than 40 kilometres.

The Nora B-52NG is distinguished by its firepower, extended range, high mobility due to its wheeled platform and advanced fire control systems, making it a valuable component of modern artillery arsenals

Currently, the Nora-B52 is in service with the armies of several countries, including Serbia, Kenya, Cyprus, Bangladesh, and Myanmar. Now Azerbaijan will become the new user of the howitzer, purchasing fifty self-propelled artillery mounts.

One of the key advantages of the Serbian howitzers is their high mobility.
