Panzerhaubitze 2000 (PzH 2000)
One of the most modern guns in the world! | Bundeswehr
In this tarantass PzH 2000, in addition to the coachman, four passengers are placed. A very beautiful, I would even say, elegant vehicle and its proboscis is very sexy.
They say that from this very sexy proboscis you can spit out a package of five 155 mm shells one after the other in just 10 seconds and along different trajectories, so that the shells will fly to the target at the same time.
Very impressive characteristics of this 60-ton tarantass on tracks, there are no words. However, the most important and most important characteristic of this vehicle on tracks is its price (cost). To say that the price of our tarantass is fabulous, it means to say nothing, it is sky-high.
For example, if you pay in one euro coins, then the weight of the volume of such coins will be more than the weight of our tarantass. But of course this product has its drawbacks, no product is without flaws.
For example, although you can fire five shells in a row in 10 seconds.
However, in just 24 hours, no more than 100 shells can be fired. That is, in terms of a day, we have that the maximum rate of fire is one shot in 15 minutes.
You can, of course, shoot a series of five or even ten shots. But in this case, the next series of shots can be started no earlier than in 75-150 minutes.
Thus, when riding this tarantass on the mountain and desert roads of Afghanistan, there is no need to install a semaphore on the tower, as well as have semaphore flags and know the semaphore alphabet. Another thing is when the tarantass moves along the steppe roads of Donbass and Kherson.
Here, for the driver and crew members of the tarantass, knowledge of the semaphore alphabet and the presence of semaphores on the tower will be a more necessary thing than a 155 mm barrel.
