Description: The PzH 2000 is a 155mm 52 calibers (L52) self-propelled howitzer designed to provide indirect fire support to rapid reaction forces and artillery regiments. It is compatible with all 155 NATO standard shells and charges, and features high rates of fire with outstanding accuracy. High mobility, transportability, availability and automatic shell handling system make PzH 2000 a rapid reaction system with a round capacity for 60 units. In addition to the 155mm main gun the PzH 2000 features one coaxial and one roof-mounted 7.62mm machine guns. The 155mm main gun can hit targets at 30 km with conventional ammunition and targets at ranges of 40 km employing assisted ammunition. PzH 2000 also features Multiple Round Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) capability.

The PzH 2000 howitzer can be employed in littoral warfare environments firing against sea moving targets. This capability was demonstrated during a trial campaign in Sweden carried out by the PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzer. The German Army received the last PzH 2000 of a first batch comprising 185 systems in 2002. Greece, the Netherlands, and Italy have also ordered the PzH 2000 self-propelled howitzer. It is expected further German Army and export customers orders. The PzH 2000 could potentially supersede all M109 howitzers currently in service and soviet-made self-propelled howitzers in east Europe.
