Nigerian troops seen with the Italian made Palmaria 155mm Howitzer in the Northeast

The Nigerian military has in recent days intensified its land and air operations against the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) in the Northeast region of Nigeria.

These operations have been carried out using sophisticated weapons and aircrafts which have proved effective against the terror group causing them to surrender to the Nigerian government.

A good example of this sophisticated weapon is the Italian made Palmaria 155mm self propelled howitzer used by the Nigerian Army against ISWAP positions and settlement.

Pictures below show Nigerian military troops with the Palmaria 155mm self propelled howitzer in Northeast Nigeria.

The Palmaria 155mm self propelled howitzer fires rocket assisted High Explosive Fragmentation (HE-FRAG) projectiles and NATO 155mm ammunition.

The Palmaria 155mm self propelled howitzer can travel at a maximum speed of 60km/h and has an operational range of 400km.

The impact of the rocket projectiles fired by the Palmaria 155mm self propelled howitzer on ISWAP positions and settlement is usually very devastating and degrades their fighters physically and psychologically.

What do you think of this sophisticated weapon?

Thank you for reading.
