    Thanks. So, it is really not a dumb rocket then, have some sort of CPU, Beidou receiver and some adjustable fins and I am assuming have some small motors as well, perhaps not quite a missile .. more like guided rocket or smart rocket

    Wondering how much more expensive the rocket compare to the conventional one .. I know China can do amazing thing in price ;)

    I spy with my little eye a automatic ramming system, but no automatic feeding system as those on the CAESAR.

    China made SA 2 type 76 mm self-propelled gun. Is this for export?
    It is updated from the model seen in 2016. Use extensively by US army as tank destroyer Hellcat
    It is now standard size for frigate anti air, anti missile gun

    The new SA2 anti-aircraft vehicle uses a naval turret mounted at the rear of the truck chassis armed with an H/PJ-26 76mm naval gun system.

    This new vehicle uses the same PJ26 type 76mm naval gun used by warships of China, which can fire 120 shells per minute and has a maximum range of 10 km. The 76mm gun is electrically controlled for elevation and traversing, and is stabilized in elevation.

    The SA2 76mm also includes an automatic loading system, Electro-Optical surveillance and tracking panoramic sight for detection, recognition and identification of targets. The turret can traverse through 360° and the elevation is from -10° to +75°.

    The crew cabin is at the front with a power generator at the rear. In firing position, two hydraulic jacks are lowered to the ground on each side of the vehicle to provide a more stable firing platform.

    The Chinese-made SA2 76mm seems to be very similar to the Italian-made Oto-Melara DRACO system a multifunctional land-based mount designed around the unrivalled 76/62 Super Rapid naval gun to create a unit capable of C-RAM (counter-rocket artillery mortar) role, as well as air defense and ground combat for different operational employment.

    Were are they going to store the ammo for that? More importantly, are the recoil systems good enough to actually absorb the shock of that rapid firing gun ?
    A 76mm seems hugely excessive considering that unless they reduced the rate of fire that thing is going to run out of ammo pretty fast. Moreover I am somewhat skeptical that those ground supports can withstand the recoil of that RPM.

    The SA-2 also should have the capability to fire those timed air-burst munitions similiar in principle to AHEAD, judging from its muzzle device.

    It can take the recoil of 120 mm gun. Why it shouldn't take the recoil of 76mm gum half the size?. If you built enough shock absorber and stabilizer even with high RPM

    First off that recoil system is completely different in design from that of the 122mm howitzer seriously just look at it, those absorbers are almost twice as thick as those on the 76mm. Secondly a howitzer is not expected to fire any more than 10 RPM a minute max. If that 76mm is to be any effective, it did have to be firing as fast as the naval version. Thing is the naval gun has the benefit of a 2500 ton platform supporting it.
    The Oto-Melara DRACO while having been extensively showcased, has not been accepted by any armed forces world wide. And there might be a pretty good reason for that .
