    The massive recoil dampener on the SA2 probably helps though I still have some doubts.

    The 130mm A-222 coastal gun has a similar configuration and they make it work.

    I see no reason to think why there should be skepticism towards the SA2.

    Well I had make mention of that fact that both the 122mm and 130mm howitzers are not subjected to the kind of RPM that SA2 being an anti air cannon is expected of.

    Hmmm... This 8x8 chassis first appeared at Zhuhai in 2014 or 2016, as part of an airborne assault display. Now it mounts a different turret and possibly a different gun. Note the LWRs and/or maybe millimeter wave radars in the turret corners (too blurry to tell for sure). Also note the possible RWS on turret top. The firing ports have been removed from the 8x8 chassis, and the propellers now have a new shroud design.

    Of course, it's now in Marine camouflage. Not sure what this means. Was this done for Zhuhai or does this mean the Marines are evaluating it?

    Then I'm sure you'd consider it fair to also mention how 76mm is a much smaller calibre than 122mm or 130mm as well...

    And again it would seem that discussion and insight is to be discouraged on this form, to be replaced with sparkles and dancing the conga line to whatever Norinco put on sale.

    An article regarding China's various SPGs of various calibers and types. Also included is an article on the PCP-001.
    In my opinion, in terms of rapid deployment capabilities, China is current ahead of most other nations. Both their marine and airborne corps have access to a completed array of fighting vehicles that are not only easily transported, but also are capable of traversing almost any terrain and are fully amphibious. So in any hypothetical situation whereby heavy lift transportation are limited, a Chinese expeditionary force will be better equipped than any potential opponent. Add in the VT-5 light tank and you got yourself a fully equipped force capable of an armored spearhead approach.
    Of course, tactics and the competence of the force's commanders will play a big role in determining the outcome but one can never have too many cards to play with.
    Russia has yet to apply this concept beyond that of its Nona/Vena self propelled mortar, whereas the 2S1 Gvozdika is a rather dated SPG. The West had only begun to belatedly consider this concept in earnest. Only recently BAE US had introduced a dual 120mm self propelled mortar concept mjolner which is clearly a ripoff of the AMOS but without the autoloading system, yet somehow none of the forumers of that particular website are lambasting the fact that the US had actually managed to make an even worst copy of an existing system.
