This Tank Howitzer 2000 tank model's upper body is made of metal while the turret and lower body is made of plastic. The turret can rotate all 360 degrees. The main gun can elevate about 70 degrees. The tracks are fitted and do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
The maker of the model really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. When they are painted in different color, say for example, shovels and ropes, they are indeed painted accurately.
The model comes in a window box that measures 9 inches by 5 inches by 3 inches.
The Panzerhaubitze 2000 ("tank howitzer 2000"), abbreviated PzH 2000, is a German 155 mm self-propelled howitzer developed by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and Rheinmetall for the German Army. The PzH 2000 is one of the most powerful conventional artillery systems deployed in the 2010s. It is particularly notable for a very high rate of fire; in burst mode it can fire three rounds in 9 seconds, ten rounds in 56 seconds, and can—depending on barrel heating—fire between 10 and 13 rounds per minute continuously. The PzH 2000 has automatic support for up to 5 rounds of Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI). The replenishment of shells is automated. Two operators can load 60 shells and propelling charges in less than 12 minutes. PzH 2000 has also been selected by the armies of Italy, Netherlands,Greece and Croatia, and more orders are probable as many NATO forces replace their M109 howitzers.
