The Armed Forces of Ukraine for the first time showed the combat work of the British self-propelled 155-mm howitzer AS-90

More than two months ago, the Armed Forces for the first time showed howitzer AS-90 on the roads of Ukraine. And now, the first video has appeared, demonstrating the combat work of an artillery mount.

What is known

The AS-90 is equipped with a 155 mm L31 gun. A self-propelled howitzer can hit targets at a distance of up to 30 km. Additional armament of the artillery mount is represented by one 7.62 mm L7 machine gun.

The United Kingdom first announced the transfer of the AS-90 to the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the beginning of this year. Initially, it was about providing 24 howitzers, but later the number was increased to 33 pieces.

The AS-90 is equipped with a Cummins VTA903T diesel engine. The British self-propelled howitzer is capable of speeds up to 55 km/h. The power reserve is 370 km.
