The German Armed Forces will provide Ukraine with four more PzH 2000 Self-Propelled Howitzers (SPHs) and additional ammunition. According to a Statement by the German Ministry of Defence, the delivery will be initiated immediately, “despite Germany’s own strained materiel situation.” According to discussions with the industry on the accelerated supply of refurbished guns from the Army’s overhaul, they are earmarked for Ukraine, it said.

Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht stated that Ukraine was full of praise for the system and had expressed a desire for more SPHs. According to Lambrecht, the latest batch brings the number of PzH 2000s supplied by Germany to 14 units. In addition to Germany, the Netherlands has also delivered PzH2000s to Ukraine, resulting in a combined total of 22 units delivered by both countries.
