The official publication of the People's Army of Vietnam presented a new creation of local engineering - the Pth85-VN18 artillery system.

The product was created at the Z751 factory, which specializes in the production of technical rubber. The designation Pth85-VN18 is an abbreviation for the name 85mm Self-Propelled Cannon - Vietnam. A Ural-43206 truck with a 6x6 wheel arrangement of the Soviet model is used as a platform. It houses the 85mm D-44 cannon, which was produced in the USSR from 1946 to 1954. Currently, it continues to remain in service with a number of former pro-Soviet countries.

The mass of the gun together with the platform is 14 150 kg. The deployment time of the artillery system is 5 minutes, which are necessary to install two retractable jacks and prepare for firing. Ammunition is located in the body.

Apparently, this product is an attempt by local enthusiasts to seize on the global trend in the development of artillery, in accordance with which there is a widespread use of self-propelled guns.

This is especially clearly seen in the example of China, which is massively introducing the PCL-181 system into the troops. In Russia, work is currently underway to create the "Coalition-SV-KSH". However, the attention of specialists is mainly focused on the placement of 152/155 mm guns on vehicle platforms.

      But Vietnam has been doing this kind of system for a long time.



      Focusing primarily on South Korea


      In turn, the South Koreans showed the first sample of the EVO-105 in 2011

      So Syria has nothing to do with it ...

    and it is not easier to just carry the cannon in tow as usual, well, the installation of the cannon is a little longer.

      In general, the problem is not in the installation, but in time to wash away. Counter-battery fight. request

    So that's all in the subject, if it "works" effectively .... in appearance, another chimera, for those who have no better.

    ... apparently the Vietnamese ran out of captured M101A1s. That they put on trucks since 2014



    And they started looking for what else could withstand such a chassis.
