The PzH2000 was tested recently
firing the Denel V-LAP extended range ammunition over a distance
of 56 km, a range traditionally covered by rocket artillery.
Standard base-bleed 155mm projectiles usually reach about 40
km. The gun was tested within the limited elevation restrictions
imposed by the South African test range (737 mils). According
to KMW, the system has the potential to reach a range of 60
km when elevating the gun to 980 mils. PzH 2000 SP gun is currently
operated by the Armies of Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Greece.
The system is characterized by its full autonomy in navigation
and fire control.
