The Ukrainian army has tested the Pion self-propelled howitzers in the area of artillery withdrawal sites in Donbas.

Such self-propelled guns launch 203.7 mm shells, being capable of hitting enemy targets at a 8.4-47.5 km range, the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation wrote on Facebook.

The Pion system can fire more than just high-explosive shells: its design allows defeating enemy forces with nuclear arms.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukroboronprom boasted TOP-5 Ukrainian developments in defense industry in 2018.
