When I was looking at other press releases from United Defense I found this one. Looks interesting. I think this is related to the FCS-NLOS program.

This article isn't about the 105mm cannon, but the 155mm NLOS-C that I dubbed 'Excalibur', mainly after the rounds it is to fire. From the article it sounds like the NLOS-155 Excalibur (again, my designation) will be on a tracked chassis instead of a wheeled one.
Also, I would like to point out in the Article about the 105mm cannon, they have it pictured on a chassic that looks very much like the Stryker chassic. Could this be the "Stryker NLOS-105" (my designation)? With a range of 30 km it would have better range then the M198 155mm guns that are supporting the Stryker Brigades now. Though it would lack the hitting power. I'll do some more investigating.

I've made notes on this one as well. I want to look into some of the technologies behind this and add them to the tech tree as prerequisites for these types of units.
