The first video of the combat use of Zuzana 2 howitzers worth .6 million by the Armed Forces of Ukraine has been published

The Armed Forces of Ukraine have been using Slovak self-propelled howitzers Zuzana 2 since 2022. A video of the combat use of an artillery mount was published by Ukrainian journalist Yuriy Butusov.

What is known

The Ukrainian Defense Forces received eight Zuzana 2 howitzers from Slovakia. The latter was delivered in early 2023, after which Germany announced that it would provide 16 artillery installations together with Norway and Denmark.

In January, Slovak Minister of Defense Jaroslav Nagy (Jarolsav Nad’) informedthat Ukraine has made a request for the purchase of 11 more howitzers. The cost of one is approximately $7.6 million.

There is practically no video with the use of Zuzana 2 by the Ukrainian military, so the new video can be considered a rarity. Earlier we saw Slovak howitzer on exercises. The new video demonstrates combat work at the front.

Zuzana 2 is equipped with a 155 mm cannon and two machine guns (7.62 mm and 12.7 mm). The maximum firing range is 41 km. It uses a Tatra 8×8 vehicle as a chassis. It has a power reserve of more than 700 km and is capable of speeds up to 80 km/h.
