    IDEX: NORINCO unveils latest SH1 artillery system

    Christopher F Foss Land Consultant -Abu Dhabi



    China North Industries Corporation ( NORINCO) brought its SH1 155 mm/52 calibre self-propelled artillery system to IDEX for the first time.

    The system consists of a 155 mm/52 calibre gun mounted on the rear of a 6x6 cross-country truck chassis. The gun features powered elevation and traverse and a flick rammer to reduce crew fatigue and increase the rate of fire, while the crew compartment accommodates a five-person crew, is fully protected and has a roof-mounted 12.7 mm machine gun for air- and self-defence purposes.

    The gun's maximum range depends on the projectile/charge combination, but NORINCO claims the Extended Range Full Bore Base Bleed Rocket Assist projectile has a maximum range of 53 km. A total of 20 155 mm projectiles and associated charges are carried.

    In addition to firing conventional natures of 155 mm ammunition, the system can also fire the NORINCO 155 mm laser-guided projectile for pinpoint accuracy.

    Development of the SH1 has been completed and the system is already in service with at least one export customer, probably Pakistan.

    NORINCO is now marketing a complete family of wheeled self-propelled artillery systems, which offer lower operating and support costs as well as greater strategic mobility than their tracked counterparts. In addition to the SH1, these include the SH2 122 mm system and the SH4 105 mm system, which fires NATO standard ammunition.

    NORINCO's SH1 self-propelled artillery system is appearing at IDEX for the first time. (NORINCO)

    Pakistan acquired approximately 90 SH-1 truck-mounted howitzers

    SH1 155-mm Self-Propelled Howitzer | Military-Today.com

    The SH1 self-propelled howitzer was developed by NORINCO for the export market. Development of this artillery system commenced in 2002. It was first revealed in 2007. Details of this artillery system were released at the same time as were details of the smaller SH2 122-mm truck-mounted howitzer. Pakistan acquired approximately 90 SH-1 truck-mounted howitzers. It may also enter service with the Chinese Army in the near future.

    The SH1 is armed with a 155-mm / L52 howitzer. It is compatible with all standard 155-mm NATO ammunition, as well as ammunition developed by NORINCO. Claimed maximum range of fire is 53 km which was achieved with a rocket assisted V-LAP projectile using charge zone 10. In addition this artillery system is able to use indigenous precision guided munitions, based on the Russian Krasnopol technology.

    Ammunition box of the SH-1 artillery system houses 25 rounds of seven different types and their modular charges.

    Before firing a large spade is lowered to the ground. It provides more stable firing platform.

    The SH1 is fitted with a computerized fire control system, navigation, positioning and targeting systems. Vehicle receives target information from artillery command vehicle.

    Secondary armament consists of a 12.7-mm machine gun, mounted on top of the roof.

    Vehicle has a crew of five. An armored driving cab provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters.

    The SH1 artillery system uses 6x6 truck chassis. Vehicle can be airlifted by most medium transport aircraft.

    A complete SH-1 regiment comprises 24 truck-mounted howitzers, four battery command post vehicles, one battalion command post vehicle, one meteorological radar, four 6x6 wheeled reconnaissance vehicles and one artillery locating radar.

    All PA M109 have/are being upgraded to A5 standard, in addition to the M109A5 we received from the US whose delivery was completed in 09.
    PA never operated the M109 A1, it had M109 A2.
