The company wanted to highlight the system's superior range when firing rocket-assisted projectiles (54.8 km at sea level), rate of fire (six rounds in the first minute, with a sustained rate of fire of 2 per minute), and its ability to fire six rounds that land simultaneously on the same target.
This weapon also has an elevation range of 3° to +72°. During the demo, the weapon put two rounds into the same target at 1,000 meters in distance. According to the article I read it is comprised of the gun mounted to a 8x8 Tatra truck and weighs approximately 38 tonnes and has a speed of 85 km/h. Its clearance is 41 cm and can wade in depths of 1.4 m.

Here is more information on this vehicle. Truck-Mounted T6-52 Gun
