Seeing as though you are so interested in ‘facts’ phase 2 was a part of LAND 17. That was indeed a project to acquire a self-propelled howitzer for the Australian Army. That project was cancelled however in favour of an additional purchase of M777A2 lightweight towed guns, by the then Labor Government,Hi
Just to let you know the G-6 was part of the initial tendering process, called phase 2 which stopped in 2012 . THe Defense Minister this year awarded the tender to S Korea for the K-9 / 10, with a hundred rounds for Auto loading. Here's the the kicker, they expect the K-9 spew a round called GGAm out to 100km or so.
Project LAND 8116 - Mobile Protected Fires, has since been re-raised by the current Government under the new Defence ‘smart buyer’ procurement policies, as a sole-source selection.
G-6 was never shortlisted for Australia. Bid yes, but not short-listed. PZH-2000 and K9 were. Add to which it hasn’t been in production for many years as I understand it and has no integration with our BMS, C2 systems nor our new artillery ammunition supply (Assegai)...
It is so far away from being a realistic prospect for Australia it is laughable.
