Fitted with a 52-calibre ordnance, or a 57-calibre ordnance with a special muzzle break, the weapon has a maximum range of 24,000 metres firing standard ammunition or 30,000 firing base bleed ammunition.
This is a 52 calibre weapon which can fire a new range of base bleed projectiles up to 30 km, making it similar in performance to 155 mm weapons, although conventional munitions have a 24 km range.
If the 52-calibre 155 mm howitzers are used to fire standard HE rounds fitted with drag-reducing base bleed units, they should achieve 50 km ranges.
