Panzerhaubitze 2000 A1

The Panzerhaubitze 2000 A1, an improved version of the Panzerhaubitze 2000, is one of the most modern and powerful artillery gun systems in the world. Originally the Bundeswehr had planned to procure up to 600 Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled howitzer (SPH), but this plan was abandoned as a result of the rapidly changing security situation in central Europe after the end of the Cold War and the resulting reduction of the German Armed Forces. In the end only 183 Panzerhaubitze 2000 SPHs and three driver`s training vehicles were fielded. The armament consists of the 155mm L/52 cannon, a 7.62mm x 51 MG3 air defence machine gun and a 76 smoke discharger system with eight launchers.
