Denmark increases artillery capabilities with ATMOS and PULS systems

By Defence Industry Europe

On March 2, Israeli defence company Elbit Systems announced that it has signed two contracts to supply 155mm self-propelled howitzers and artillery rocket systems to “European NATO member country”. The aggregated value of these agreements is USD 252 million.

Elbit has not specified which country is the customer, but – as Defence Industry Europe reported in late January – recently Denmark decided to buy the ATMOS 155mm self-propelled howitzers and PULS Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) from the Israeli company.



Negotiations on the procurements have been ongoing over the last weeks and on March 1 Elbit Systems announced it has signed two contracts for the supply of these systems to “European NATO member country”.

According to Elbit Systems, under the first contract in an amount of USD 119 million, the company will supply a battalion’s worth of ATMOS (Autonomous Truck Mounted Howitzer) 155mm/52 caliber truck-mounted howitzers systems. The contract will be performed over a period of two years.

Under the second contract in an amount of USD 133 million, Elbit Systems will provide two batteries worth of PULS artillery rocket-launcher systems including a package of rockets and missiles. The contract will be performed over a period of three years.

The ATMOS modular artillery system is a combat proven wheeled Howitzer solution, capable of  firing all NATO-certified 155mm projectiles that has an effective range of over 40km with standard projectiles and offers extended range with Rocket-Assisted Projectiles (RAP). The ATMOS is designed for rapid deployment and operation enabling provision of fire support for a broad range of missions.

Elbit Systems’ PULS launcher supports firing both free-flying rockets and precision guided rockets and missiles ranged form 12km and up to 300km. The PULS launcher is fully adaptable to existing wheeled and tracked platforms, enabling a significant reduction in maintenance and training costs.
