The NATO multinational battlegroup in Lithuania recently conducted live-fire drills to test its readiness involving the German Army’s Panzerhaubitze 2000 (PzH 2000) artillery system.

 

 

The PzH 2000 is a 155 mm self-propelled artillery gun capable of firing several shells a minute. It’s currently in service with several NATO Allies, including Lithuania.

 

 

 

The German Army’s Panzerhaubitze 2000 worked alongside artillery units from the Lithuanian Iron Wolf Brigade and multinational forward observer teams to conduct “shoot and scoot” drills, in which the PzH 2000s emerge from cover, execute a fire mission, and shift location before they can be hit with a counter-attack. The exercise held at Pabrade Training Grounds ensures that the NATO multinational battlegroup in Lithuania remains ready to respond to any threats.
