Sorry , maybe it is Satellite 卫星导航系统 guided mortar shell
Saw this from 大包CG, so potentially 120 rockets. So the vehicle at the back is just an unmanned launch platform?Shilao made a comment about this with diagram:

He said this vehicle has been around for 4-5 years already. The front section is the loader and holds 4 reload of rockets. The rear section is the launcher and holds 2 loads of rockets.
Possible, or they might revamp/rethink how they do maintenance for this platform (if say 8 of these vehicles, maybe have a smaller 'squad' of dedicated people to maintain and repair always following it?)So they basically eliminate the crew for ammunition carrier. And now its crew have to do the maintenance for two tracked platform
Note there is a truck chassis version according to the image.Allegedly from a NORINCO presentation. A new generation 155mm self-propelled howitzer. Not sure if this is for export or domestic use. The turret might be unmanned. It reminds me of a NORINCO export howitzer that also has an unmanned turret (3rd image).
I had a discussion about this system with an ex-US Army Sergeant on Quora. His comment has a lot of true points. The same number of trucks would be needed to supply it anyway. Because the loader can not go to the supply point on its own.Saw this from 大包CG, so potentially 120 rockets. So the vehicle at the back is just an unmanned launch platform?
