Mounted on the chassis of the WMZ551 6x6 wheeled armoured vehicle, the SM4 is a new model of self-propelled mortar system capable of firing HE, pre-fragmented HE, cargo and rocket-assisted HE shells, etc., to suppress various targets. Its strong maneuverability enables it to carry out a variety of combat missions.

The SM4 self-propelled mortar serves as the main equipment of batteries affiliated to light mechanized infantry battalions. Usually it is used to perform firing missions with a battery as the basic firing unit. When necessary, it is also capable of implementing single-gun firing missions. Able to fire a variety of ammunition, it offers a large fire coverage, short reaction time and small recoil. Its maximum firing range varies from 7,500 to 13,000m, depending on ammunitions type.

The SM4 is equipped with a ballistic computer that calculates gun setting data, assists the gunner in firing, stores and processes various data and commands to improve operational effectiveness.

The SM4 features manual muzzle loading and anti-recoil mechanism. Two firing modes are available: pull action fuse and impact action fuse. Capable to carry up to 30 complete rounds, the SM4 has a max. rate of fire of 12 to 15 rounds per minute. A 12.7mm MG as defensive armament is mounted on the vehicle for defensive purposes. High running speed (max. On-road speed of 100km/h), excellent cross-country performance and great maneuverability allow the SM4 to avoid counter-battery fire.

Crew comfort is ensured by air conditioning and comfortable interior, plus a top fiatch that can be opened and closed hydraulically to achieve better concealment and battlefield survivability.
