K9 self-propelled howitzers in demand

Building upon its sale of K9 self-propelled howitzers to Estonia, South Korean Hanwha Corporation is looking to Central and Eastern European allies for additional sales of the artillery. The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania have all been offered the howitzer, however, talks are all at early stages according to the company. Following Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine in 2014, numerous Eastern European countries have unveiled plans to purchase howitzers for their respective armed forces. Estonia’s K9 acquisition is in cooperation with Finland, with whom it already cooperated in 2009 on an air surveillance radar procurement.
