The PLZ07 is a modern self-propelled howitzer of Chinese origin. It was developed in the early 2000\'s to supplement and replace the older 122mm self-propelled howitzers in Chinese service.
The AK-100 is a naval gun turret of Soviet origin. It was developed in the 1970\'s as a more capable alternative to the 76mm AK-726 twin gun mount. Production has switched to the more capable A-190 naval gun turret. The A-190 is a further development of the AK-100 with a higher rate of fire.
The PzH 2000 is a modern self-propelled howitzer of German origin. The PzH 2000 was developed at the request of the German military following the cancellation of the SP-70 project. PzH 2000 stands for Panzerhaubitze 2000, or self propelled gun 2000 in English. Two consortia set out to develop prototypes in 1986. The first consortium was headed by Krauss-Maffei and the second by Wegmann. In 1990 the contract was awarded to Wegmann and testing and improvement lasted until 1996.
The UMGT-1 is a lightweight torpedo of Soviet origin. It was developed as a more capable alternative to the AT-1 torpedo for use on the URK-5 Rastrub rocket ASW system. Aside from being delivered as payload on various types of ASW rockets the UMGT-1 can also be launched from helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. In that role it is designated AT-3.
The M163 Vulcan is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun of US origin. Also known as the Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS), it was developed to replace the M42 Duster in US service. The M163 was complemented by the Chaparral self-propelled surface to air missile system in US service. The M163 packs powerful armament that is only of limited use against aircraft due to the lack of automated fire control.
