notes"The SH2 is a wheeled self-propelled howitzer designed and manufactured by the Chinese Defence Company Norinco. The SH2 artillery system was first unveiled at the Abu Dhabi International Defence Exhibition in 2007 (IDEX 2007) held between 18 and 22 February, and is being actively prompted to the export market. The lightweight and high-mobility features of this artillery system may be of special appeal to the PLA airborne force and marine corps. The SH2 has demonstrated superior performance under all weather conditions and a wide range of altitude, and it can be equipped with special gear as per mission requirement."

notes"The SH-1 self-propelled howitzer was developed by NORINCO for the export market. Development of this artillery system commenced in 2002. It was modeled after a French CASEAR. This Chinese artillery system was first revealed in 2007. Details of this artillery system were released at the same time as were details of the smaller SH-2 122 mm truck-mounted howitzer. Pakistan acquired a total of 90 SH-1 truck-mounted howitzers. Deliveries were completed between 2012 and 2013. This artillery system is also in service with Myanmar. The SH-1 was aimed mainly at export as Chinese army does not use this system."
