PzH 2000 is already at the front - BILD showed the first video with howitzers in Ukraine
German 155 mm self-propelled howitzers PzH 2000 are already on the front line.
BILD published photos and videos with the latest artillery of the Armed Forces in the combat zone.
Journalists reported that the Ukrainian military is taking maximum measures to hide the location of valuable weapons from the Russians. The howitzer in the footage is disguised as vegetation, and everyone present does not use mobile communications.
One of the ACS operators quoted by journalists, named Ruslan, said that they spent 36 days mastering PzH 2000, although they initially planned to study the weapon in 10 days. The Ukrainian military assessed the howitzer as follows:
" We are very grateful to the Chancellor of Germany and the German people for these ACS. This is a perfect weapon, one such howitzer costs three Soviet ones, which we used before. The Russians still have an advantage in artillery. But we hope to be able to change that with new arms supplies. We need more! ”
In total, Ukraine already has 12 PzH 2000, which were transferred to Germany and the Netherlands. Germany plans to supply another 6.
