The Panzerhaubitze 2000, shortened to PzH 2000, is a German 155 mm self-propelled howitzer. It was developed by the KraussMaffei Technologies GmbH together with the Rheinmetall AG for the needs of the German military. The production was launched in 1998 and continues to the present.

The PzH 2000 is considered one of the most powerful artillery pieces used in the 21st century. It is known for its remarkably high fire range - the howitzer can unload 3 shells in 9 seconds and 10 shells in 56 seconds. The PzH 2000 is also equipped with the MRSI system (Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact) which allows it to hit the target with several shells at a time. The 155 mm L52 artillery gun is complemented by a MG3 7.62 mm machine gun. The top speed is 67 km/h.

The Panzerhaubitze 2000 was widely used by the Dutch and German troops during the War in Afghanistan. Today it is in service with the armies of Italy, the Netherlands, Greece and other countries-members of NATO.
