China expands the use of guided munitions with old cannons

15

The photo used by most Chinese media to illustrate. news, was depicted shooting from 122-mm towed howitzer type 86 (Chinese clone of the Soviet D-30), or an improved version of it with an increased barrel length.


However, the reference in the text of the "howitzer guns" of the old type suggests that the illustration most likely does not correspond to the content of the message. Most likely, we are talking about the use of guided munition 152-mm gun-howitzer type 66, a Chinese clone of the Soviet gun D-20, the most common Chinese artillery system of this class.

The license to manufacture the Krasnopol Corps artillery projectile was sold to the Chinese in the 1990s; It was previously known about the use of ammunition Chinese 155-mm howitzers new types. There were also reports of the creation by the Chinese on the basis of "Krasnopol" of their own models of adjustable ammunition with an increased range.

    China is of course our strategic partner, but honestly this news did not add optimism to me.

      They’re not in a hurry to throw them away, I hope we won’t stomp with tanks, as under Khrushchev ...

    Many developments were sold for nothing, to everyone who had money ................
    It's a shame that there is abroad from our developments, in our army this is how to fly into space ......

      It's a shame not only that they sold. But the fact that we are led by those who signed the paper for sale and their children.

    What is the fact that China uses old guns to launch guided missiles? The Americans didn’t buy new guided bombs, but simply invented overhead kits with wings for freely falling bombs.

    The news is sucked from the finger. Many artillery systems are capable of firing different types of shots. The question, as always, is the cost of the shot. As before, expensive ones will lie in warehouses, and landfills will be cheaply fertilized.

    China expands the use of guided munitions with old cannons

    A principled approach is worthy of imitation.

      Pfff ......... If you think that China is a pioneer, I'm afraid that you were mistaken, everyone does so if the machine is still suitable and you can still use it.

    License for the production of Krasnopol corrected artillery shell was sold to the Chinese in the 1990s

    We sell everything, we sell it, and we ourselves will remain without milk.

    Zvizdun under Khrushcheh, by the way, the SA armored troops crossed the 100th mark, the mark - as always, would be farted by nothing ...

    Well, we learned, so what? All the same, these shells are applicable against a slightly armed enemy. Because the guidance is not more than 3 km, the guidance device 50 kg. If it is possible to direct from a drone, then it’s still normal.

    drinks I liked the form of the Chinese artillery men, it’s immediately evident that conscripts are taken care of soldiers, but otherwise, if the call is voluntary on the basis of desire, there will be no volunteers in the army. The cannon is clean, it’s just like new. how the Chinese improved it and if they did everything correctly, they also need to buy a license for the upgraded versions from them, thank God there is a loot. It’s interesting how much their modernized guidance device weighs and how many kilometers it takes. Then the Chinese made another copy of the Amer excilimbur, also an advanced high-precision shell, how can we buy this technology there. We need to work more actively here, we are brothers forever.

    And if we are not talking about a specific howitzer and shell, but about expanding the use of guided ammunition. At least that's what the title says. This suggests that the ratio of the number of regular / managed, in the direction of controlled suitcases. That is, for example, it used to be 10/1, now 7/3. How do you, dear, such an option?
