The company presented its new artillery prototype, a continuation of the ZUZANA and EVA product lines at DSEI. The prototype has already completed its first test firings. It is learned that the product is developed with the experiences gained from the battlefield in Ukraine.
The company stated that they aimed to combine the advantages of the ZUZANA 2 and EVA 155mm self-propelled howitzers by mounting the system on a 6×6 truck. The BIA is lighter than the 155mm ZUZANA 2 and offers greater mobility while maintaining the same firepower. Compared to the 155mm SpGH EVA, the BIA has more ammunition capacity and provides better protection for crew with an armoured cabinet resistant to light calibre bullets and artillery shell splinters.
