The Philippine Army Artillery Regiment concluded on April 8, 2022, its first-ever three-day live-fire drill utilizing its Autonomous Truck Mounted Howitzer System (ATMOS) 155 mm/52 caliber self-propelled artillery pieces at the Fort Magsaysay Military Reservation Area in PalayanCity, Nueva Ecija.


On May 20, 2020, Army Recognition reported that the Philippines Department of National Defense (DND) had released the Notice to Proceed (NTP) for the acquisition of 2 batteries of Elbit Soltam ATMOS 155mm/52cal Self-Propelled Howitzer systems under the service's 155mm Howitzer, Self-Propelled System Acquisition Project

The ATMOS 2000 is a 155mm truck-mounted wheeled self-propelled howitzer that was designed by the Israeli company SOLTAM Systems. The first information about the vehicle was released in 2001.


The ATMOS is armed with a 155 mm/L52 gun-howitzer mounted at the rear of the truck chassis. The front of the truck is fitted with an armored cabin which provides protection against ballistic and mine threats. The artillery system is operated by a crew of six.

The ATMOS can fire all standard 155 mm NATO ammunition. It has a maximum firing range of 30 km with standard HE (High Explosive) projectile and 41 km with extended-range projectile and 56 km with the newly-developed rocket-assisted projectile.
