Slovak Defense Minister Jaroslav Nad has announced his country is in talks with the Ukrainian government over the potential sale of Zuzana 155 mm self-propelled howitzers to Ukraine.

The Zuzana is an upgraded eight-wheel drive variant of the Dana self-propelled howitzer from Czechoslovakia.  The weapon is currently being used by the armed forces of Slovakia and Cyprus.

The Defense Minister said he was negotiating with Kyiv over whether the sale would be of the older Zuzana 2000 variant or the newer Zuzana 2. However, there was no mention of how many of the units they would be selling.
