Firing Inside the German PzH 2000

Only one crew member is visible, assistant gunner, who loads the propellant manually. Also in the vehicle are the driver, the rear machine gunner, the gunner and the commander. The automatic loading system handles most of the workload. The Panzerhaubitze 2000 ("Armoured howitzer 2000"), abbreviated PzH 2000, is a German 155 mm self-propelled howitzer developed by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) and Rheinmetall for the German Army. The PzH 2000 is one of the most powerful conventional artillery systems currently deployed. It is particularly notable for a very high rate of fire; in burst mode it can fire three rounds in 9 seconds, ten rounds in 56 seconds, and can fire between 10 and 13 rounds per minute continuously, depending on barrel heating. The PzH 2000 has automatic support for Multiple Rounds Simultaneous Impact (MRSI) for up to 5 rounds. The replenishment of shells is automated. Two operators can load 60 shells and propelling charges in less than 12 minutes.

    Starting with the labeling of the Fort Hood massacre as "workplace violence" and now the ever unfolding truth about Benghazi, Americans with any common sense can only conclude that the Obama administration is worse than clueless; it's criminal. Labeling Fort "workplace violence" was one the worst most hideous jokes, crimes, perpetrated against our people until Benghazi happened. Fort Hood and Benghazi will stand as an indictment of the Obama administration, its left-wing careerist cronies, and the so-called "mainstream media" for decades to come. If you are an American, a patriot, support the Fort Hood folks and write your congressman to reclassify it as "an act of terror"; which is exactly what it was.
