152-mm 2A65 Howitzer
Designed to defeat unsheltered and covered manpower and equipment of the enemy. It is mounted on a two trail carriage provided with a firing platform. During fire the wheels are raised clear of the ground. The process of conversion of the howitzer from the travelling position to the combat position and back is substantially accelerated due to use of a hydraulic jack. The barrel is equipped with a muzzle brake and a vertical wedge semi-automatic breechblock. Loading is quick-firing separate.
