Description: The T5-2000, dubbed Condor, is a new artillery system designed to provide excellent mobility and long range precision strike capability. It comprises a 155mm 52 calibers G5-2000 gun and a Tatra T815 WN 8x8 all-terrain truck or similar vehicle according to customer needs. The T5-2000 retains the same impressive features of the G5-2000 artillery gun adding outstanding mobility, reliability and ease of use.

Basically, T5 is similar to T5-2000 but equipped with a 155mm 45-caliber gun system. Its range goes from 39km using base bleed ammunition to 54km with V-LAP projectiles. The rate of fire compares badly with 4 rounds per minute versus 8 rpm of the T5-2000. The loading system is semi-automatic in the T5-2000 compared to T5's push rammer system.

The G5-2000 features multiple rounds simultaneous impact capability, self-propelled capability through the auxiliary power unit, autonomous navigation system, compatible with all NATO 155mm ammunition, high accuracy, and digital data transfer. Using base-bleed assisted projectiles the weapon system can hit targets at 40km away. V-LAP projectiles increase that figure to 54km.

Denel's T5-2000 Condor artillery system carries 22 projectiles and 26 charges on-board. This self-propelled howitzer was still under development in the early 2000s and intends to be the South African counterpart to the French Caesar truck-mounted weapon system.
