The Pakistan Army has been in the process of modernizing its artillery units in the next few years. In 2008, the Pakistani Army procured two Chinese-made SH-1 truck-mounted 155 mm howitzers for testing these vehicles failed the operational tests of the Pakistani army.

The Denel T5-52 is a truck-mounted gun-Howitzer 155 mm/52 calibre using a Czech-made Tatra T815-7 8×8 modified military truck chassis.

The T5-52 has an operating crew of four crew members, and two crew members to prepare and supply the ammunition. The elevating mass consists of the ordnance, the cradle with an integrated buffer system, and the ammunition handling and ramming system.

The T5-52 carries a total of 30 projectiles and 30 charges. The 155mm cannon is fitted with a semi-automatic loading system with 6 ammunition ready to fire, the remaining of 24 ammunition are in storage box located at the rear of the crew cabin.

The ordnance has been optimized for the 52 caliber 155mm ballistic system. The projectiles are the extended range type and provide an increased range and target effectiveness when compared with existing systems. Using base bleed projectiles, the weapon has a range of 42,5 km at sea level. NATO and other ammunition can be fired, after consultation with the supplier.

A panoramic optical-mechanical sight is mounted directly to the trunnion, incorporating a compensation system for trunnion cant, which forms a backup for indirect fire. A telescopic sight for direct fire is mounted to the compensation system and gives a direct fire range of up to 3000m.
