SH-1 started as an export project with Pakistan and Burma be the two
known customers.  Latest photos from the 72nd Artillery Brigade, 72nd
Group Army,  Eastern Theater Command confirms that SH-1’s PLA domestic
equivalent is now in service at home.   The 72nd Artillery Brigade also
commands PHL03 300mm long range MRL and PLZ05 155mm tracked SP howitzer,
a heavy hitting unit indeed.

This truck mounted 155mm concept was first revealed in 2007 based on the
towed Type89 (PLL01) 155mm/L52 system.  It can fire all standard 155mm
NATO ammunition in addition to Norinco’s 155mm laser-guided round.  It
is mounted on a standard Chinese 6×6 truck chassis but can be easily
“remounted” with a local truck and a secondary 12.7mm machine gun for
defense.

While the SH-1 sports no armor protection, it is light enough to be
airlifted by a C-130 or a Y-9 class transport, making it a more flexible
option for China’s growing Rapid Reaction Units
