The Type19 Wheeled Howitzer Self Propelled was developed as the successor to the FH-70 in order to speed up fire and position changes, improve tactical and strategic mobility, and networking.
Development began in 2008 as a Fire power combat vehicle and was development completed in 2013.
The barrel is the same as that of the Type99 Howitzer Self Propelled, and the body is a German MAN 8×8 truck, produced under license by JSW.
