The self-propelled system is based on a variant of the K200A1 tracked armored vehicle developed by Hanwha Defense. The project costing about 770 billion won ($647 million) will be completed by 2025, according to the Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA).
The self-propelled mortar system to be used by South Korea's mechanized military unit can carry four passengers, with a maximum speed of 70 kilometers (43 miles) per hour. With a maximum range of 12 km, it can fire up to eight shots per minute.
