    Germany sent a Gepard SPAAG and KMW Boxer AGM (Artillery Gun Module) to Qatar during the DIMDEX-2018 taking place in Doha. Qatar has recently been signing multiple defense contracts. German weapon exports have been down and after losing the Israeli contract for the AGM, Germany is hoping for an export to Qatar.

    do you think it is possible for Qatar to buy since they purchased 24 Pzh 2000s and have expressed interest in the Turkish T-155?

    oh yes, look at Saudi Arabia for example they have 3 types of howitzers they have the M109A5s, PLZ-45s, and French Caesar. so it is very possible that Qatar could acquire the AGM from us but the quantity maybe as the same size as the Pzh order. The Saudis have also wasted money on 3 different types of jets plus in talks for 2 others types so it is very possible and might make us regain our sales in the area.

    Qatar has moved towards Turkey signing a new contract for 200 Nurol NMS. for the AGM it is very possible since many countries in this general area is looking for a truck mounted howitzer, but you may have to compete against the MKE Yavuz and Aselsan Asya from Turkey.

    that is very possible but the only problem right now on that is Turkey is still maturing the vehicles, they might be ready next year or in the next few months yes, but right now no.
