The Excalibur Precision 155-millimeter mm projectiles Excalibur program provides the Brigade Combat Teams with an organic precision fires capability. Additionally, it provides improved fire support capability due to its increased range of 37.5-kilometers and demonstrated accuracy of less than four-meters radial miss distance, which enables a first round effect on target reducing the number of rounds required while reducing collateral damage. Excalibur is compatible with the M777A2 Lightweight 155-mm Howitzer, the M109A6 Paladin Howitzer, and the M109A7 Paladin Integrated Management Howitzer. Excalibur provides a 33-percent range increase over current Rocket Assisted Projectiles with a less than ten meter circular error probable requirement at all ranges. Excalibur is also highly resistant to Global Positioning System jamming. This item is Code A, approved for Service use.
