Good News!: PH getting Israeli self-propelled gun system




Good news for the Philippines.

Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has issued the much awaited Notice to Proceed (NTP) to Israeli company Elbit Systems Land & C4I for the acquisition of ATMOS 155 mm/52 calibre self-propelled artillery system.

The issuance of the Notice to Proceed (NTP) is the last step for the Israeli weapon firm to begin production of ordered self-propelled artillery system.
MaxDefense Philippines, last week, made a statement regarding the issuance of said NTP. “Since the contract states that Elbit Systems should deliver all the products in 24 months, that means the Philippine Army should expect delivery of the ATMOS artillery systems before April 2022. And it is highly possible that Elbit may be able to deliver the first batch way ahead of April 2022,” MaxDefense said.


As reported before in preparation for the arrival of this self-propelled artillery, the Philippine Army has activated 2 field artillery batteries under the Army Artillery Regiment (AAR).

The acquisition of the field artillery batteries will help in troop maneuverings to destroy, neutralize, and suppress the enemies through its fire support to maneuver units.
