Type 54 152-mm Howitzer

In 1955 China developed designs for the 152 mm towed artillery, in imitation of the Soviet Union D-1 type 152 mm howitzer which post-World War II, the Soviet Union used for artillery division-level support before the mid-1970s. Before the 1980s, it served China as an important support artillery corps level, to equip infantry regiment of heavy artillery howitzer battalions, each battalion having 12. Later it was gradually retired.
