Artillery: Israeli Innovation In Central Asia
   Next Article → IRAN: We Know Nothing
November 17, 2009: Israeli firms have developed three new artillery systems for the Kazakh Army. The equipment will be built in Kazakhstan, which inherited several weapons manufacturing plants when the Soviet Union dissolved (because Soviet factories and weapons then belonged to the 14 new countries formed from that dissolution.)

The Israeli developed systems include a truck mounted 122mm howitzer, a truck mounted 120mm mortar and a truck mounted rocket launcher system that can use 122mm, 160mm or 200mm rockets. All the systems will be mounted in Russian made Kamaz military trucks.

Israel is also providing fire control and communications systems. Kazakhstan apparently plans to seek export sales once it has produced enough of the new systems to equip its own forces.
