In other other interesting developments Raytheon and Bofors have created a new GPS guided artillery shell which is now deployed in Iraq.

The cost of the shells is secret, but according to American press reports, they cost about 200 000 kronor each, compared to a cost of 7 500 kronor for a conventional shell. They have the same accuracy as a Tomahawk missile, which would cost a hundred times as much.
