LAV-III Stryker T7 Stryker 105 mm self-propelled howitzer
LAV-III Stryker 105 mm Self-Propelled (SP) Howitzer is based on the
unique 105 mm Towed Gun Howitzer ballistic system as developed by Denel,
packaged in an integrated and lightweight turret system. The development
the 105mm LAV III Light Self-Propelled Howitzer (LSPH) has taken another
leap forward with the certification of the system as safe for manned
firing tests. To date, the system has been remotely fired. The LSPH
is a joint project between General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS), Denel
Land Systems (DLS) and Rheinmetall Denel Munition (RDM). Work on the
development resumed last year after the cancellation of the US Army’s
NLOS-C (non-line-of-sight, i.e indirect fire, cannon) programme the
year before. DLS in a statement say the LSPH during the week of July
4 fired high explosive projectiles at a maximum range of 31km from a
manned turret at Armscor's Alkantpan Test range in the Northern Cape.
