From the Meng website:

During WWII, Germany was the country which developed and equipped the most self- propelled guns, including the well-known Hummel and Grille. After WWII, Germany also actively developed new self-propelled guns to deal with more and more complicated situations around the world. In the 1990s, the Panzerhaubitze 2000 appeared. Once released, it was quickly recognized as the global standard for SPGs.

The PzH 2000’s overall length is 11.69m, width is 3.54m and combat weight is 55.8t. The vehicle utilizes a large number of chassis parts of the Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 MBTs. It is powered by the MTU MT881 engine, which has excellent maneuverability; PzH 2000 is equipped with one 155mm/L52 gun from Rheinmetall, with an advanced sight and fire-control system; 60 rounds are stored vertically on board in a horseshoe arrangement; its automatic shell-loading system has realized automatic management of all ammunition and greatly improved the rate of fire, starting a new era of autoloaders. It has strong operational capability, maneuverability and superior protective capability. It is one of the most advanced self-propelled guns in the world. This vehicle entered German Army service in 1998, and then later with the armies of Italy, the Netherlands and Greece.

The PzH 2000 is the pride of the modern German Army. For its mighty exterior and strong operational capability, it is greatly welcomed and loved by most modellers.
