Israeli Elbit Systems announced it was awarded a $125 million contract by Israel’s defence ministry for “automatic howitzer gun systems.” The specific number of artillery pieces wasn’t revealed.

Elbit Systems claimed these artillery pieces are cost-effective and require small crews. Based on this description, ATMOS 155mm truck howitzers are soon being adopted by the Israel Defence Force (IDF).
