Denmark, France and the Netherlands have received the first shipment of new anti-tank weapons under the Land Battle Decisive Munition (LBDM) multi-national NATO project.

The LBDM project allows allies to acquire land munitions, including mortars, artillery shells, rockets and missiles, in a cost-effective and flexible way.

The munitions have been delivered through the NATO Support and Procurement Agency under a Memorandum of Understanding signed by defence ministers at the NATO Summit in Brussels in July 2018.

To date, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain have joined this effort. NATO partners Austria, Finland, and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia are also participants.
