An Updated Classic
Since its establishment in 1955 the Bundeswehr has extensively deployed U.S. hardware. One example was the M109G self-propelled gun, a version of the base U.S. M109 received from 1964 onwards, and which the Bundeswehr modified with new tracks, fire control system, muzzle brake and breech. The long-serving M109G had a major upgrade between 1986 and 1990 – denoted M109A3G, converted vehicles had a Rheinmetall L/39 155mm FH70 gun with a 24.7km range. At the same time, the fire control system was overhauled, a bulletproof cover added to the panoramic sight, and shell capacity increased from 28 to 34. Replaced by the cutting-edge PzH 2000 in 2007, the Bundeswehr’s very own M109 gave over 40 years of service in its different guises.
