Algeria acquired Chinese 155-mm self-propelled howitzers PLZ45

According to Chinese and Algerian web resources, Algeria acquired a batch of Chinese 155-mm / 45 self-propelled howitzers PLZ45. Some time ago, there were pictures of loading a batch of these SAUs on a transport vessel in China, and on January 14 2014, the Algerian web resource www.forcesdz.com published transportation footage on the trailers arrived in Algeria PLZ45 on the highway in Blida. As can be judged, the delivered howitzers were transported to the central logistics base BCL (Base Centrale Logistique) of the Algerian army.


155-mm / 45 self-propelled howitzer PLZ45 was developed and produced by Harbin 1st Machinery Group Limited (factory No. 674), part of the China North Industries Group Corporation (CNGC, also NORINCO Group). This ACS uses a modified WZ321 tracked chassis developed by the same company, and an 155-mm / 45 trailing part based on an 89-type towed howitzer gun made by Shanxi Northern Machine-Building Company (factory No. 01, Taiyuan). The PLZ247 system was developed in the 45s initially as a pure export, and was supplied to Kuwait (1990 units in 51-2001) and Saudi Arabia (2003 units in 54-2008 years). In addition, a small number of PLZ2009 was delivered in the first half of the 45-s to the troops of the Beijing Military District of the PLA. Together with the PLZ2000 SAU, the PCZ45 armored ammunition conveyor, manufactured on the same modified WZ45 tracked chassis, is also used.

It should be noted that, according to a number of reports, Algeria had previously purchased a batch of 155-mm / 45 towed PLL01 cannon-guns in the PRC.

        It’s not clear where, because Algeria’s neighbors are disturbing Mali, Libya. It is possible to assume that Algeria is not the last place of deployment!

    Here you have China. It has already swung to Algeria. Because in the Chinese style all kinds of arms sales markets capture. Young people. They know how to work

      they take our markets ... Algeria has always been a country purchasing weapons only from the Russian Federation ...

        They do not take away, but we "love". When their war was going on, we had no time for them - they almost collapsed themselves, and now they are being bought from everyone - Germany was not bad in advance there, although our supplies are not the smallest.

      Comes, do not hesitate. They put 50 for export, 250 for themselves ... you need to learn from them.

      Already reached! Otherwise, they would have bought from us! The greed of our manufacturers and quality problems, the MIG-29SMT is proof of this, the reason for the loss of traditional markets ....

    Algeria seems to have a financial problem if they have taken such a step. Or a loan from China without interest received.

      The main thing is that they’ve entered and ammunition and spare parts will be delivered for money.

    The Chinese need a testing ground for running "their" developments ... a bit like the USSR at the best of times.

      Not quite so - the cannon itself was Xeroxed among the Austrians, although ours are not few there.

    I look at the photo of the road in Algeria, not bad built. Algeria buys from different countries so that it does not depend on one or two (well, probably price-quality plays a role)
