|The Schutzenpanzerwagen 17 "Swine" Artillery
Howitzer is an older design and is still in use due mainly to the calibre
of its main weapon: 22cm.
This weapon fires a mixture of rounds: cluster, self forging, penetrator, HE, poison gas and 'Red Pills' - nuclear rounds for use against targets that don't have nuclear dampening.
Mounted on what is essentially an armoured ACV lorry, they are supported in use by ACV or wheeled ammo haulers.
