Although the armed forces were supposed to release the requirements last February, they were postponed due to delays in other Army projects.
A total of up to 36 of these artillery systems, capable of quickly, efficiently and systematically engaging targets with a range of up to 40 kilometers, are to be procured and will equip two to three artillery divisions and mechanized brigade groups.
