The Czech company Excalibur Army has started to supply Ukraine with 122 mm 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled gun. The number of these SPGs is not disclosed, trailers with 2S1 Gvozdika were recently seen in the Czech city of Olomouc. The Czech newspaper Echo24 writes about this.

To be more precise, according to the Military Balance as of 2021, the Czech Armed Forces have 48 Dana self-propelled guns at the disposal and other (over 38 units) are in storage instead of 2S1 units.
