German PzH-2000 In Action With Ukrainian Forces In Donbass

Click to see full-size image

The first videos showing the German-made Panzerhaubitze 2000 (PzH 2000)  155 mm self-propelled howitzer in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine are currently being shared online.

The first PzH 2000 were spotted in action on the front lines in the Lisichansk area. According to the videos shared by Ukrainian servicemen, the fire is conducted by high-explosive DM121 BT (Boat Tail) ammunition made by Rheinmetall Waffe Munition.

 

The PzH-2000 is 155-mm self-propelled howitzer gun was developed by the German concern Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and adopted by the Bundeswehr in the fall of 1998. It is believed to be one of the most powerful conventional artillery systems. In burst mode it can fire three rounds in nine seconds, ten rounds in 56 seconds, and can fire between 10 and 13 rounds per minute continuously. The replenishment of shells is automated. Two operators can load 60 shells and propelling charges in less than 12 minutes.

The PzH 2000 is currently in service with the armies of Italy, Netherlands, Greece, Lithuania, Hungary, Qatar and Croatia.

 

In total, Ukraine should get 12 PzH-2000 from its Western partners within the joint program by Germany and the Netherlands. Germany transfered seven PzH 2000 to Ukraine and the Netherlands sent five systems.

On June 21, the Minister of Defense of the militants of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov confirmed that the German self-propelled guns PzH 2000 are already in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Ukrainian servicemen arrived in Germany for training in the use of the PzH 2000 howitzer. If the Germans study for six months, the Ukrainian soldiers had to master it in 36 days, but the training was originally planned for ten days.

Ukrainian servicemen claim that the German howitzers are three times more effective than analogues that were in service with Ukrainian forces. However, Ukrainian fighters confirm that their number is not enough to stop Russian advance on the front lines.

NATO howitzers do not replenish the ranks of the AFU artillery troops, but fill the gap as a big number of Ukrainian systems have already been destroyed. According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, 3,073 field artillery and mortar guns were destroyed as of July 2. In turn, NATO countries have supplied a few hundreds of various artillery systems in total.

Artillery systems are one of the most important weapons used by warring sides in the Ukrainian war. As for the Kiev forces, their equipment is not enough to fulfill the ambitious, or rather, unrealistic tasks for the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced by Kiev officials.

The German authorities in April announced their intention to allocate €2 billion for additional military assistance, more than half of this amount will be sent to Ukraine.

In the first half of 2022, the German authorities approved the supply of arms and military goods to Ukraine in the amount of almost € 562 million. This was stated in the report on the export of military products for the first six months of this year, which was released by the press service of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Protection of Germany on July 1.

“According to preliminary data, in the first half of 2022, individual licenses for arms exports worth €4.14 billion were issued,” the report says. At the same time, it is indicated that 92% were sent to partner countries, including Ukraine. According to the German Ministry of Economy, against the background of the current events in Ukraine, Germany’s support for Kiev “is also reflected in the figures for the first half of the year: licenses worth about €562 million were issued for Ukraine’s self-defense.”

On June 28th, the Bundestag agreed on thr comprehensive support for Ukraine and the supply of heavy weapons to the war-torn coountry, according to the parliament’s reports.

I do hope that Russia will get one of these just like the CAESAR, German and French artillery systems being into Russian hands. Hmmm… I wonder if they’ll reverse engineer them and mock the Pro-Ukraine supporters and the companies that made them.

Russia is not able to win more than 200 m in 5 months and you really believe that this is the world’s best army?? ;-) what a shame, Putin is pissing on your heads – you are dreaming while putin is selling Russia to the West ;-) !!!!!

Who is paying you to post this copium. Russia is advancing with 1/4th the manpower that Ukraine has, meanwhile Ukraine has received more military aid than the entire GDP of a small country. How the fuck is Ukraine still losing? How?

Italy also is reported to have sent Pzh-2000 in Germany and therefore, in Ukraine, there are news about 5 guns.

I do not know how all of this big and a lot of them can enter to Ukraine, not to mention to go to Lisichansk area. I do not think that they dismantled them and took them in pieces into Ukraine. So what Russian satellites and drones are doing. Looks like Russians are a bit short and “backward” regarding surveillance of battlefields let alone whole country.

Putin allows the entrance of weapons because he wants to see a lot of killed russian kids and babies, killed russian civilists and soldiers.. he is a traitor, because he talks a lot but his promises are fairy-tailes only and nobody believes any longer that he will attack decision centers or even the WEST, who is delivering thousands of weapons to kills Putin’s Russians..

Muhammad your Prophet

The Putin cockroaches have been repelled decisively at every front by the Ukrainian forces. Even at Lysychansk of all places where Vladimir Putin has sent all his reserve battalions and the city’s position puts it at risk of encirclement. The Putin terrorists are stranded at Izyum without any chance of reinforcing Lysychasnk and attaching the flanks. Putin is fucked. His only tactic left is terror tactics. Just like the terrorist strike he just launched in Odessa that murdered 21 innocent civilians.

“UralWagonPlant” awaits new exhibit to research. Then it will be exhibited in tank museum in Kubinka as many other german military vehicles and tanks around the world. Here you can find several modifications of “Panzers” and “Tigers”, “Panthera”, “Maus”, howitzers. Soon we can see “Caesar”and “Panzerhaubitze-2000”, i hope.

Like the article said, Germans are trained for months in the system while the Ukraine’s get days. This means that they don’t know how to really use them and what to do if it breaks down. Russia just needs to keep a look out for one broke down and take it like the French Caesars!

Who knows maybe Germans are using them masquerading as Ukrainians,it would be the first time,i believe there are Nato troops in with the Ukrainian army,otherwise they would be down to the old men of the Volksturm and the 14 year old Hitlerjugend.

Germany soldiers have been there since 2014. Azov posted videos of fire fights in the Donbass years back, and they filmed a German flagged mercenary with them.

Actually, about 80 years ago, there were Nashorns and Hummels in Ukraine. To fight communists. Now there are Pzh-2000 to fight for nazis once again. The history repeat itself as farce.

Ricardo Montoya

It’s unbelievable that Russia let this get to the battlefield. It seems their intelligence, surveillance and detection is not very good. They haven’t destroyed a lot of western equipment before it got to the front. Also, still waiting on strikes to decision-making centres in Kiev. I think they will never strike them because that would just embolden the west to support Ukraine even more

The Ukraine front is equivalent to an area as large as the eastern entire coast of the United States: exceptionally difficult to cover all areas for ANYONE, including all of Nato. It takes time to mobilize people and equipment to get the exact targeting and not be deceived by all the modern methods of electronic deceptions. Get real.
