The UK has agreed a government-to-government sale with Sweden for the procurement of Archer artillery systems to replace the AS90 platforms Granted in Kind to Ukraine. The contract will be signed shortly, and until that point the value of the Archer programme will not be finalised. Once agreed, the contract will include other elements such as ammunition, support and training packages.
