notes"The PCL-161 Chinese 122mm Self-Propelled Howitzer (SPH) is a truck-mounted 122 mm self-propelled howitzer used by the Chinese People's Liberation Army Ground Force. The PCL-161 was designed to provide indirect fire support. It is much more efficient than towed howitzers and can briefly change its firing position."
