no autoloader, of course... no protection of course... there are cases when you can shoot and scoot... but what you gonna do when you get counter battery fire???

I think this is a replacement of traditional towed canon or howitzer. so it is not the same concept as M-109 or similar SP guns.

It is basically an improvement on towed artillery. There are several versions on the market now.

@Kreuzerkrieg, Taiwan don't have to worry about counter battery fire, becoz in order for chinese troops to counter battery fire back at, they need to land their artillery on the island of taiwan first, and its very easy to take out chinese artillery once they land.
