In April, Ukraine’s defense industry will produce 10 “Bohdana” self-propelled howitzers, marking the first time the country has achieved this level of production in a single month.

President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, announced this milestone in his daily report on the security situation in Ukraine. He stated, “The share of our own production is constantly increasing. The state signs serious, long-term contracts with our enterprises, providing predictability, the ability to employ people and attract investment. This month our industry will produce 10 Bohdana self-propelled howitzers for the first time, with more to follow in May and beyond.”

The 2S22 Bohdana is a 155 mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer designed and produced in Ukraine. It is mounted on the chassis of the Ukrainian six-wheel-drive KrAZ-6322 truck. The howitzer has a maximum range of 42 km. According to then-Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikhov, Bohdana entered full production in January 2023.
