The NATO Submarine Rescue System (NSRS) is a multi-national project to develop an international submarine rescue system. The system will provide a rescue capability primarily to the partner nations of France, Norway and the UK but also to NATO and allied nations.
The NSRS is managed by Rolls-Royce and will enter service by the end of 2008, replacing the current UK rescue system by mid 2009. The complete system is fully air transportable in the A400M European large transport aircraft.

The 105mm Light Gun is an air-transportable 105mm caliber towed howitzer intended for rapid reaction forces such as paratroopers. It entered service in the British Army in 1975 and since then has been sold to more than 17 international customers.
The British Army is upgrading its existing high mobility 105mm Light Guns to keep the weapon system in active service until 2025.
