    India should look into this promising South Korean self-propelled 155mm howitzer.

    K9 was tested in India and is a participant in the SPG contest. It's tied with local partner L&T.

    Why buying korean howitzers if with the german Pzh 2000 (that are literally gifting to the croats) using Vulcano ammo you can reach with no problem the 80km range.

    Poland will buy only full ToT for chasiss and MTU engines

    It's first.

    Second - this article is full of mistakes.

    Poland have it's own turret system - from AS90 Braveheart (Polish name "Krab" (Crab)).
    There was chassis made in Poland - SUM Kalina then on based this - chassis for KRAB 155mm howitzer.
    During problems whit non existig power-to weight ratio in W46 and S1000 engine in almout 60t. howitzer polish MoD after year of testing had deicded to buy full TOT for chassis and chassis only.
    Samsung offer the best conditions.
