The ARTHUR system (ARTillery HUnting Radar) system was initially mounted on Unimog U2150 trucks (see Unimog 2150 page for system history). After its issue, the configuration was reported unstable, and the system was transferred to the MAN 27.314.
After intensive use in Afghanistan, a need for modification occurred in 2009. Better cooling and filtration of the air is among the matters being dealt with. Also the software was modified, in order to decrease time from plot to a warning can be send to the affected area. The software is known as "ARTHUR+".

Although highly successful in Afghanistan, it appears that this asset will be out phased around 2014.
