The 2S22 Bohdana is a 155mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer developed in Ukraine. It is based on the 6×6 chassis of the KrAZ-6322. It has an armoured cabin and enough storage for around 20 shells. The howitzer has a minimum range of 780 meters, and a maximum range of 40 km with HE/AP ammunition or 50 km with a rocket-assisted projectile. It had an average rate of fire of six shells per minute.[1]

The first public demonstration of the howitzer was in the Kyiv Independence Day Parade of 2018.
