PzH2000GR Self-propelled Howitzer
The Hellenic Army employs 24 PzH2000GR self propelled howitzers which entered service in 2004. The Greek vehicles are finished in a unique four colour camouflage scheme. The markings contained in this set enable the modeler to portray any PzH2000GR self propelled howitzer.
A small number of Hellenic Army M107 175 mm self-propelled guns served for a short period on Cyprus and these carried unique camouflage schemes similar to the ones used by the Greek Cypriot National Guard. Later they were converted to the M110A2 configuration. Four different vehicles may be built using the markings included in this set.
Hellenic Artillery St. Barbara icon insignia
All Greek artillery pieces, both towed and self propelled carry a unique marking in the form of a brass icon of St. Barbara who is the artillery's patron saint. This marking can be found on all artillery pieces in service with the Hellenic Army and the Greek Cypriot National Guard.
This set covers vehicles used by the Greek Cypriot National Guard from 1976, just after the Turkish invasion of Cyprus to 2015. In the years following the war the Cypriot National Guard modernised its equipment and this set of markings covers both the older types of vehicle that soldiered on as well as the modern vehicles that replaced them. The types covered are the BTR-152 APC, T-34/85 tanks as well as the Land Rover and more modern equipment like the VAB personel carrier, the AMX-30B and AMX-30B2 tanks, the BMP-3 IFV, the Mercedes 250GD field car and the BM-21 rocket launcher system. The full colour instruction's leaflet also describes the various changes that the camouflage schemes went through over the years.
