notes"Is a forerunner of the PLZ-07. It is a similar 122 mm self-propelled howitzer, which was developed mainly for export. It emerged a couple of years before the PLZ-07. Known operators of the SH3 include Rwanda."
name"PLZ-07B"
notes"Is an amphibious self-propelled howitzer, used by China's marine corps. This artillery system is fully amphibious. It has a boat-like hull for improved floatation and is fitted with a trim vane. Though it uses the same turret as the PLZ-07. On the water, this artillery system is propelled by two waterjets. The PLZ-07B can be launched at sea from amphibious assault ships and swim over short distances to shore."
