Ukraine trials 2S22 Bogdana wheeled artillery

The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has started trials of the 2S22 Bogdana, a wheeled self-propelled howitzer (SPH) armed with a 155 mm ordnance. The first trials were conducted with wooden blocks, as opposed to a munition, which is designed to test whether the barrel can handle the necessary pressures.

The first trials are expected to be completed by mid-2020, at which point there will be state-run tests. Adoption within the Ukrainian Army is not expected until 2021–22, according to Ukrinform, Ukraine’s national news agency.

A prototype of the 155 mm 2S22 Bogdana is shown during an Independence Day parade. The system is slated to undergo trials until mid-2020 and could be in service one or two years later.
