介绍

Pakistan’s artillery will be supplemented with hundreds of Chinese-made 155mm SH-15 self-propelled howitzers. That’s what the website News Nation reported on December 24, 2019. Accordingly, 236 howitzers will be purchased by Islamabad under a contract with China’s NORINCO. According to some sources, the cost of each SH-15 is about $ 2.1 million.

巴基斯坦的炮兵将配备数百门中国制造的155毫米SH-15自走榴弹炮。这就是网站《新闻国家》在2019年12月24日报道的内容。据此,伊斯兰堡将根据与中国北方工业公司的合同购买236门榴弹炮。根据一些消息来源,每辆SH-15的造价约为210万美元。


Design

设计


Compared to Sh-1 predecessor, SH-15 has several improvements. The better armored cabin accommodates a complete crew of 4 or 5 soldiers. The armor provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters.

与Sh-1的前身相比,SH-15有一些改进。更好装甲的座舱可容纳4名或5名士兵的完整车组。装甲可以防御小型武器射击和炮弹破片。


As mentioned above, the SH-15 retains the 155mm howitzer of the SH-1 and is provided with a semi-automatic loading system, allows to increase the rate of fire twice as fast as the conventional way. The gun barrel is fitted with a double baffle muzzle brake. When moving, the ordnance is held in position by a clamp located to the immediate rear of the cab, which is operated by remote control. When the SH15 is deployed in firing position, two large spades are lowered at the rear to provide a more stable firing platform, allowing it to maintain accuracy when firing at high speed.

如上所述,SH-15保留了SH-1的155毫米榴弹炮,并配备有半自动装载系统,可以使发射速度两倍于传统方式。炮管装有双挡板炮口制动器。移动时,弹药通过位于驾驶室正后方的装具保持在适当位置,该装具由遥控器操作。当SH15部署在射击位置时,两个大铲子在后部降低,以提供更稳定的射击平台,使其在高速射击时保持精度。


Firepower

火力

The SH15 has a maximum firing range of 20 km with standard ammunition and 53 km with a rocket-assisted projectile. The maximum rate of fire is 4 to 6 rounds per minute. It is compatible with all standard 155 mm NATO ammunition, as well as indigenous ammunition developed by NORINCO.

SH15使用标准弹药时的最大射程为20公里,使用火箭辅助弹丸时的最大射程为53公里。最大射速为每分钟4至6发炮弹。它与所有标准155毫米北约标准弹药以及NORINCO开发的自产弹药兼容。

A special feature of this howitzer is that the chassis system is capable of raising or lowering depending on the terrain conditions and the payload. The built-in ammunition boxes are located on the each side of the vehicle quite clearly, and are easily affected when the vehicle is moving on rough roads. A total of 48 rounds of ammunition reserve. Elevation and traverse is hydraulically operated.

这种榴弹炮的一个特殊功能是,底盘系统能够根据具体地形和有效载荷来升高或降低。内置弹药箱非常整齐地位于车辆的两侧,在车辆在崎岖的道路上行驶时很容易受到影响。共有48发弹药储备。提升和横移是由液压操作的。

Overall, this self-propelled howitzer system is highly mobile and powerful. It can be deployed at long distances or can be transported by medium transport aircraft. It is light enough to be carried by Y-9 or similar military transport aircraft. SH-15 will be a flexible choice for quick reaction units, enhanced combat power, survivability, automation, and digitization for artillery forces.

综上所述,这种自行榴弹炮系统具有高度的机动性和强大的火力。它可以长途机动部署,也可以由中型运输机运输。它足够轻以至可以由Y-9或类似的军用运输机运输。 SH-15将是快速反应部队、增强的战斗力、生存能力、自动化和火炮部队数字化的灵活选择。
