The CS/SM2 120mm 8x8 wheeled self-propelled mortar is mainly used accompanying artillery to main battle tanks. It can give quick fire support to neutralize field fortifications and covered targets, e.g. command center, artillery troops, etc., and to suppress hostile effectives on reverse slope position, in valley or behind trees.

The CS/SM2 is characterized by its indirect fire capability, good armour protection, high cross-country and amphibious mobility, short deployment time, high reliability and maintainability.

Main armament consists in a 120mm gun-mortar, capable of firing HE projectile and HE bomb with a 360° traverse of fire. It can fire at a max. range of 9,500m with HE projectile, and up to 8,500m with HE bomb. The CS/SM2 has a rate of fire of 6 to 8 rounds/min. This new mortar system only needs a 4-persons crew and has a max. cruise range of 600km.
