History[edit | edit source]

Class: Tank Destroyer
Developed: 1980s
Service: 1983-2010
Vehicles Built: 97
Operators: Norway

The NM142 is a Norwegian counterpart to the American M901 ITOW Tank Destroyer. It consists of a standard M113 hull fitted with a Kvaerner Eureka Armored Launching Turret, which in turn is armed with a twin Hughes BGM-71D TOW-2 launcher.

The vehicle was designed in the late 1980s and, eventually, 97 were built in total. They were intended to be operated in groups of four (a platoon), although sometimes three platoons would be put together to form an anti-tank squadron. The vehicles would stay at safe distance (as far as possible from the enemy), fire their loaded missiles at the enemy and then they would retreat to reload. However, after the end of the Cold War, the need for such vehicles gradually disappeared with the perceived end of the Soviet threat. With more focus on peacekeeping missions and the War on Terror, the numbers of these vehicles were gradually lowered. The vehicle saw service with the Kampeskadronen units and the first KFOR Norwegian contingent from 1999 included it in its ranks. In 2005, the number of active vehicles of this type was reduced to some 12 machines and, by the end of that decade, the type was completely phased out of service.
