The PzH 2000 is one of the best artillery systems in the world right now, hands down. It is one of the most automated systems around, capable of loading shells into the gun, laying and clearing the shells without human involvement. The human loaders only must load the shells with the charges. The autoloader allows it to have a rate of fire of a round every 3 second in burst mode, more comparable to that of a autocannon than a 100mm+ gun (Still faster than a musket, biatch). All that in-and out movement has been reputedly formed for lovers of machine porn. If all goes to hell though, the PzH 2000 also has a backup manual loading solution too. (As Vince in shamwow said, the Germans make good stuff) It has Multiple Round Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) capability which means more boom at the same time, and a Phased Array Radar on the front glacis plate capable of tracking shells in sight and adjusting the gun's fire to compensate for wind. The PzH2000 also carries a 7.62 MG3, so it can defend itself against soft targets at ranges less than 1 km or so... Or maybe the Germans added it for lovers of small arms, the people who jack off to gun mags, GALT.
You can mount it on people's backs too! Bend over, bitch (I'm not TRYING to be politically incorrect here)
Diagram displaying how MRSI works.
The PzH 2000 is fielded by Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Greece (contributing to their debt). It replaces the American M109 in many of these. Major selling points include the ability to provide pinpoint (it's a relative term, biatch) accuracy at 40 km, and C17 compatibility. Also, it is being sold due to it's PURE FUCKING BADASSERY, and it's ORGASMIC SEXINESS.
NOTE: The orange wrapping DOES NOT serve as a CONDOM.
The PzH 2000 has served admirably in the hands of the Dutch in the War in Afghanistan. It is used to support ISAF troops when they are attacked, the power of the 155mm shells is often more than enough to destroy an occupied building in 2 or 3 hits.
155mm charges and heads.
The German army will not ship them will bowling balls so you can use them as dildos.
I'm never gonna write one of these damn things again...
