PRESENT SYSTEMS OF SELF – PROPELLED GUN HOWITZERS

155 MM 52 CAL. SPGH ZUZANA 2

Another step in development line has been embodied by 155mm / 52 cal. SpGH ZUZANA 2 with maximum fire range of 41.5km. The weapon in whole range meets requirements of STANAG 4110 – the standard for designing the weapons compatible within NATO countries. The system has undergone the complete range of user trials in Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic and demanding tender trials in India. Weapon performance is supported by the latest fire control system interoperating with superior command level as well as many other supportive systems to improve the performance and crew capabilities.

155 MM 52 CAL. TMG EVA (truck-mounted gun howitzer)

The latest contribution to the family represents newly designed version of light truck mounted gun 155mm / 52 cal. TMG EVA. During the development course a special care has been taken to apply the maximum heritage portion of well proven subassemblies of ZUZANA 2 version. Under such an approach the logistic requirements throughout the service life are reduced dramatically even in case both of latest versions are procured and put into service concurrently. EVA is integrated on chassis 6x6 or 8x8.
