The Khalifa-1 GHY-02 is a 6x6 122mm self-propelled howitzer developed, designed and manufactured by the Military Industry Corporation of Sudan. The Khalifa GHY02 is armed with Russian-made 122mm D-30 refurbished towed howitzer mounted on a turntable at the rear of 6x6 truck chassis. The howitzer retained the distinctive multi-baffle muzzle brake and recoil-recuperator mechanism mounted above the gun barrel on the original D-30. The howitzer barrel is electric-operated, with an elevation in the firing arc outside the vehicle cabin from -5° to +70°, or firing above cabin from +15° to +70°. The vehicle can fire at a maximum rate of 8 rounds/min, with a maximum range of 17 km.

The Khalifa GHY02 D-30 122mm is based on a modified Kamaz 43118 6x6 redesigned chassis that has a demonstrated high level of cross-country mobility especially in all-terrain conditions in Africa. A fully enclosed cab has been mounted at the front of the vehicle and has seats for the crew of five.
