The Finnish Defence Forces are planning to buy more effective field artillery and the cost of acquiring the new stock is estimated at up to 100 million euros, reported Finnish language daily Turun Sanomat.
 
The calls for tender could be placed as early as next year.
 
The new weaponries are needed to replace the aging Army's artillery stock which will be largely obsolete by 2020s.
 
The Army want to replace its old artillery weapons with one mobile weaponry system.
 
Defence Minister Carl Haglund considers the purchase of new field artillery weapons necessary. There is also an option to buy used ones.
 
"It is a fact that we are very serious about this. It is quite clear that the artillery are aging, and highly used current systems have to be replaced," Haglund was quoted by Turun Sanomat.
