Elbit delivers first artillery systems to Denmark

By Arie Egozi

Five months after contract signing, the Israeli company Elbit Systems began supplying two very advanced artillery systems to Denmark.

In March 2023, Elbit Systems signed the contract valued at USD 252 million . The first USD 119 million contract includes a battalion of ATMOS (Autonomous Truck Mounted Howitzer) 155mm/52 caliber truck-mounted howitzer systems. Deliveries began and will continue in the next two years.

Under the second contract, in the amount of USD 133 million, Elbit Systems will provide two batteries 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 with 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 the 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 ranging from 12km up to 300km. The PULS launcher is fully adaptable to existing wheeled and tracked platforms, enabling a significant reduction in maintenance and training costs.
