Italy presumably transferred the Panzerhaubitze 2000 155mm self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine.

Analysts from Ukraine Weapons Tracker claim that artillery systems spotted in service with the 43rd Artillery Brigade are probably Italian.

Ukrainian politician Petro Poroshenko, who handed over the Oshkosh M1070 tank tractor to the military, published the footage featuring these self-propelled artillery systems.

The number of transferred ACS is unknown, but it was previously claimed that Italy would deliver six units.

The transfer of Italian PzH ​​2000 first became known to Italian media in October last year.

La Repubblika reported that the Italian government handed over heavy weapons, specifically multiple rocket launchers and self-propelled howitzers, to Ukraine.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine received two М270 multiple rocket launchers from Italy.

In addition, Italy allegedly transferred six Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled howitzers (Italy has 68 such ACSs) and 20 to 30 M109Ls.

M109L is a modernized version of the American M109 self-propelled howitzer, produced in Italy under license.

The M109L self-propelled howitzers had to first be inspected, and then they would be shipped directly to the frontline.

The exact amount of weaponry that Italy handed over to Ukraine remains classified.

The Italian media also reported that dozens of М113 tracked armored personnel carriers for the Ukrainian military would be taken from military depots.
