PLZ-83 with a 152 mm gun
How often a self propelled gun met a tank? As far as i know today is more usefull to hunt tanks whit aviation. And is useles if not having a real time map equipment.
SPG's are meant to be used as artillery, even so-called "tank destroyers" are more meant to be used as fire support, not really to confront tanks.
Like a base destroyer from far away? Now i got it. But this supposing you fighting a ipothetical enemy that stay at one place not move and no see you.
Question: can a change of center of gravity in a SPG projeftile be a king of guidance?
You mean making a projectile maneuverable by changing the centre of gravity, and together with aerodynamic forces change its descent angle? I think fins may be able to do that less complicatedly.
My point is that fins broke at supersonic speed when turns. Because of high g.
The advantage would be that in this way a missile no need to spin to maintain a straight line. So mean no rejects radar waves in all parts. So mean you can put a plastic round body on a hexagonal metal interior like invisible plane and you get a invisible missile.
Yes...ONLY if the SPG initiated the firing or ambush of a tank platoon with plenty of fire support from other artillery unit or from the air to allow the crew to escape from the danger area before the tanks return fire. The same can be applied to infantry units with ATM missiles.
Ratio of each units in the group that ambush is important
