Armament

Mounted at the rear of the SH1 is the complete upper part of the 155-mm / L5 towed artillery system. It is compatible with all standard 155-mm NATO ammunition, as well as ammunition developed by NORINCO. Before opening fire, a large spade is lowered to the ground at the rear of the chassis to provide a more stable firing platform. In road position, the gun is held in a travel lock. The 155mm howitzer of SH1 can fire a full range of ammunition as Extended-Range, Full-Bore, Rocket-Assisted, High-Explosive (ERFB-RA/HE) and Extended-Range Full-Bore, Base-Bleed, High-Explosive (ERFB-BB/HE). When using the ERFB-BB/HE round, the howitzer can reach a maximum range of 53km. The howitzer can also fire the 155mm semi-active laser-guided projectile developed by NORINCO based on the Russian Instrument Design Bureau (KBP) 152mm Krasnopol projectile. The howitzer barrel is electric-operated, with an elevation from 0 - 70 degrees and a traverse of 20°. For its self-defence and anti-aicraft, the secondary armament consists of a 12.7 QJC88 anti-aircraft mm machine gun mounted to the right side on the top of the crew compartment.
