POV with the text about the crusader system[edit]

"Generally the PzH 2000 could be modified to meet the Crusader requirements without too many modifications, but it is clear that the US actually wants to buy a US design." This is lacking NPOV. On several occasions the United States army has bought european hardware because it meets their requirements better than the American hardware available. It isn't Wikipedia's mission to start guessing about things like this, especially when there really isn't much to back the claim.

I removed "In addition the Crusader included an automated ammunition tender, although that would likely be not too difficult to add to the PzH 2000." This kind of layman's guessing isn't suitable for an encyclopedia.
Quote: "PzH 2000 contractor officials said that they could develop an automated resupply vehicle based on the PzH 2000 chassis and modify the PzH 2000 howitzer to meet all of the Crusader key requirements and many of the other Crusader requirements. Also, they believed that they could field these vehicles within 6 years of the start of development, assuming that U.S. government-furnished material, such as the actively cooled cannon, was available when needed."
Just because the PzH is superior to the Paladin, it doesn't make it completley outdated. I changed "now outdated Paladin" to "less effective Paladin".- Moshe Constantine Hassan Al-Silverburg 07:20, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

Rate of fire (ROF)[edit]

What does, "Rate of fire: 3 rounds per 10 seconds, 8 rounds per minute, 20 rounds per 3 minutes", mean? Is it burst, sustained, rapid .... ? -- Htra0497 (talk) 03:56, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Inconsistency[edit]

The crew descriptions are inconsistent between some of the prose, and the stats and infobox crew lines. The count of German orders doesn't line up with the number reportedly in service. Clarification would be greatly helpful. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.222.56.42 (talk) 04:33, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

Regarding the numbers, Germany only bought 185 howitzers, and actualy operates 153, with the others mothballed due to limited use of artillery and cutting costs. Those additional 410 mentioned were never built. I have to make an educated guess, but I think it was planned to replace the M109s in the remaining artillery regiments a that time, but this became obsolete with the reforms the german army underwent in the coming years (all of those artillery units that did not introduce the PzH2000s ordered by 1998 were dissolved between 1999 and 2008). 93.210.251.161 (talk) 19:06, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

Yes check.svg Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 19:56, 9 April 2014 (UTC)
