One of Soltam's products which I've only heard of recently and that certainly caught my eye was the "Rascal" which is a tracked, self-propelled, light-weight howitzer. Apparently designed to be as light as possible in order to be capable of being not only airborne, but also transported by a C-130, it would seem Soltham would be onto a winning formula here. Very few self-propelled artillery designs would seem to be in this league, apart from perhaps the Russian 2S9 120mm Nona-S or the wheeled French CESAR 155mm?
There doesn't seem to be any information on the Rascal, or its wheeled counterpart the ATMOS 2000, as far as being in service, or simply being marketed but with no potential buyers yet.
So has the Rascal or ATMOS 2000 actually been purchased yet? Do any armed forces operate either system? If indeed it is as air-portable as claimed, then it would be quite a boost to the firepower of airborne forces. Certainly the French CESAR artillery system seems to offer just that.
So have Soltam managed to get either into production yet? Does anyone know?
