Video footage released by state-owned broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) on 8 December suggests that a new lightweight 122 mm self-propelled howitzer (SPH) based on a modified Dongfeng Mengshi 6×6 CTL181A armoured vehicle has entered service with the People’s Liberation Army Ground Force (PLAGF).
中国国有电视台中央电视台12月8日发布的视频画面显示,一种基于改进型“东风猛士”6×6 CTL181A装甲车辆的新型轻型122毫米自行榴弹炮(SPH)已进入中国人民解放军陆军((PLAGF))服役。
 
The footage shows at least two examples of the new SPH, which features storage racks for ammunition and charges that are located to the immediate rear of the protected cabin, being used by a light combined arms brigade within the PLAGF’s 72nd Group Army during a live-fire drill held at an undisclosed location in China.
录像显示,在中国一个秘密地点举行的实弹演习中,中国陆军第72集团军的一个轻型联合兵种旅正在使用这种新型SPH的至少两个例子,这种新型SPH的特点是弹药和弹药存放架位于受保护舱室的正后方。

CCTV reported that the first of these SPHs was handed over to the brigade, which was also shown operating Dongfeng Mengshi CSK181 4×4 armoured vehicles, “during the second half of the year”, but did not specify when.
中央电视台报道说,这些SPH中的第一批被移交给了该旅,还显示“在下半年期间”使用东风猛狮CSK181 4×4装甲车,但没有说明具体时间。
 
The footage shows that the SPH, which is being commonly referred to as PCL-171, is equipped with a semi-automatic loading system. Within this system, the loading process is carried out automatically by a moving loading arm and mechanical rammer. However, the loading system does not draw ammunition from a magazine, and instead the loading arm must be manually fed a shell after the previous shell has been loaded.
录像显示,通常称为PCL-171的SPH配备了半自动装填系统。在该系统中,装填过程由移动装载臂和机械夯锤自动进行。然而,装填系统不能从弹匣中提取弹药,相反,装载臂必须在上一个炮弹装填后手动装入一发炮弹。
