These old howitzers won't much improve the capabilities of the Egyptian army.

They actually already have these tanks. They are just adding to their inventory and training.

These are not ancient versions either but rather modernized versions of the M109 with digital fire control systems capable of being digitally linked to counter-battery radar and other systems that gives them a very flexible artillery platform. If the M109 was bad, the US Army wouldn't still be using it.

The Egyptians had better buy Chinese-made howitzers. They seem to be much cheaper, but as efficient as the American ones.

Howitzers and tanks are something different. Do not confuse them.

Howitzers are just waste of money. Missile technology will drive them out very soon.
