Fallout SP and SPAA Developments

My purpose here is the same as with the the MRAP and APC threads to inform and track new developments. But also to offer systems that came into being since about 2000 as many of these are the foundation of newer systems. So Germany is first up and will demostrate my last comment.
Germany, Italy, Netherlands and Greece/PzH 2000/C5/155mm L52 How and 7.62mm MG.
