Trumpeter 1:35 - PLZ-83A SPH - Plastic model kit #05536

The Type 83 SPH is a Chinese 152 mm self-propelled standard heavy howitzer. The gun entered service in the early 1980s and was used in Korea and against the Russians. The Type 83, armed with a modified version of the Type 66 gun, was the first modern self-propelled gun in service with the People's Liberation Army of China. Overall 78 guns were built until the end of production in 1990.

The Type 83 SPH was made from steel. It was also armed with a 12.7mm machine gun and a hand-held Rocket-propelled grenade launcher. The vehicle had a maximum speed of 55 km/h.

Soon after entering service, the Type 83 SPH was determined to be obsolescent and China started to develop new systems.
