Lithuania received two self-propelled howitzers PzH2000


According to Lithuanian Deputy Minister of Defense Gedrimas Yeglinskas, the Lithuanian army received fully modernized self-propelled armored heavy tracked howitzers, which will strengthen the defense potential of the armed forces.

The contract for the acquisition of 21 self-propelled howitzers PzH 2000 from the presence of the Bundeswehr, Lithuania signed in 2015. The contract value is 58,3 million euros. Of these, 16 howitzers should be used as linear, two as training and three as a source of spare parts. The agreement also includes the delivery from the Bundeswehr of six BPz 2 Standard armored repair and recovery vehicles (based on tank Leopard 1) and 26 armored command and staff vehicles M577A2, as well as ammunition, spare parts, training equipment and training of personnel. The transferred howitzers before delivery undergo an update of all howitzer, fire control and software systems.

Until now, the battalion was armed with 105-millimeter howitzers, which could hit targets at a distance of about 11 kilometers. New PzH2000 howitzers will allow the battalion to increase the firing distance to 40 kilometers.

      Two operators can load 60 shells in less than 12 minutes
      (The ammunition in the central part of the hull is designed for 60 shells and 288 modular projectile charges)


      three shots in 9 seconds, 10 shots in 56 seconds and can - depending on barrel heating - continuously launch from 10 to 13 shots per minute.
      The automatic loader operates in automatic loading mode, in various semi-automatic modes and in emergency manual mode. It allows you to maintain the rate of fire of 10 rounds per minute (when testing an advanced automatic loader, the rate was increased to 13 rounds per minute)
      + MRSI mode (five shots at the target with the simultaneous delivery of a "gift" located at a distance of at least 17 km (11 miles))

    I hope this will be taken into account, such news annoys. Before the Coalition appears, this is the most advanced self-propelled gun in the world. And even a couple of dozen, especially with adjustable shells can do quite a bit of trouble. The main feature is the ability to implement a pseudo-volley, in addition, the self-propelled gun is perfectly protected and counter-battery combat requires very high accuracy of fire up to a direct hit.

    It seems to me that a little expensive for 2.5 million euros, you could buy a couple of paladins. For disassembly, they look almost the same. To carry the most that ..

      Despite the numerous upgrades, the paladin is inferior to PzH in all respects. This is the last century and the path is only to the museum.

      The question here is how much does the repair kit cost, compared to the used price. The Croats bought 2014 units a year earlier in 12 - "the total contract value is 40 million euros (now 21 for 58,3 million euros.). This price represents about a third of the cost of new self-propelled guns, each of which is estimated at 10 million euros." The question is when will run out of 3 as spare parts, what to disassemble next.

    Lithuanian NEs constitute one PBR. armed with old M113s (Lithuania has a total of 234 of them, delivered from Germany), Lithuania has no tanks, why does it then need self-propelled guns?
    There is only one explanation; in the future, tank units will appear as part of the Lithuanian NE, in the combat units of which self-propelled guns will operate ....
