This vehicle is built by Soltam Sytems of Haifa Israel, the system weights about 22,000 kg, and can be transported on a C130 Hercules. The crew of this self propelled artillary system is 4 to 6 people, the truck that carries it has a range of 1000 km, the gun has a range of 41,000 meters. And the trucks speed is 80km per hour, its RPM is 6 shells per minute, thats pretty good seeing that it is a 155mm gun.



ATMOS 2000

What do you think of this artillary system?

I highly doubt that 22 tons heavy vehicle is transportable with Hercules. It can barely carry 20 tons.
Range is OK , but the rate of fire seems to be nothing special (for modern artillery) - todays really good ones have 10-12 RPM.

Well you have to remember its a 155 mm gun fired from the back of a truck, thats pretty good for that kind of artillary system.
