Features[edit | edit source]

  • Self propelled guns: fire support vehicles for PvE missions.
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage.
  • Magazine loader: allows you to fire several rounds without reloading.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

As a self-propelled gun, the PzH 2000 is best used as a support vehicle for helping the team progress by removing heavily armored targets such as MBTs from the battle. Teamwork is needed for those both working with and playing an SPG. Teammates should be asked to call out targets if they are in trouble, and front-line vehicles should be supported in the battle.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • 3-round salvo
  • Good accuracy
  • Fast aiming time

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Large target
  • Long downtime between salvos

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

The Improved Fire Control Systems and Improved Load Conveyor will increase effective damage output. Upgrading to the 881 Ka-500 Diesel Engine will expedite movement between firing locations.

History[edit | edit source]

Developed in 1996 as a joint-development project between Italy, the United Kingdom, and Germany, the Panzerhaubitze was first produced in 1998 and is one of the most powerful indirect fire platforms currently available in the world. Known for its staggering fire rate and excellent cross-country mobility, the PzH has found success both domestically and as an export product for many NATO and allied armies. While early teething problems have appeared during the first combat uses of the platform, these have been addressed with upgrades.  Currently production orders are consistently arriving from across Europe and the Middle East.
