Slovakia’s Joint-Stock Company Konstrukta Defence has showcased the new 8×8 variant of its Eva 155/52 mm calibre self-propelled gun-howitzer, which is also known by its export designation of Truck Mounted Gun (TMG).
The latest 8×8 TMG – which is jointly developed by Konstrukta Defence and Czech firms Czechoslovak Group (CSG) and Tatra Trucks from 2017 – is a redesign of the previous 6×6 TMG which was unveiled in 2015.
