We are not making any canons, barrels are being overhauled at base or regional workshops.
In end of 1990's there were around 20-25 (a def magazine quoted 30 also) artillery brigades supporting infantry and armor in PA. Even if few SPs are taken away, there were still a big number of towed regts. During a visit o HIT, there was a 105 mm L-7 gun (copy i think) placed on display which was being manufactured we were told. Considering that HIT claims," GUN Factory has the capability of producing barrels ranging from 105mm to 203mm caliber", and that 105 mm is rifled while 125 mm is smooth bore, then producing a howitzer of 105 mm or 155 mm caliber shouldn't be a big deviation, in fact much needed indigenization.

Do we have any intel on if Pakistan ever bought Chinese SH-1 122mm SPAs. Global Security and few other websites have mentioned PA got 90 SH-1s referencing SIPRI, but I haven't been able to find anything.

Denel G6!
Denel G6 is $3,272,000 while 46 ton. Rate of fire: 4 round/min, 2 round/min sustained.

Very bad choice.

South Africa rivals are just some guerilla, rebellions, while India is not.

46 tons weight vs 25 tons, totally different bridge and road adaptability. Not to mention desert area.

edit:
and by the way, the extra armor helps, but not very helpful against terminal-phase guided munition like below
