    Look at the drawing of the tank. there us description of the cannon. Its main purpose is to deal with light armored vehicles like IFVs, APCs and also with low flying low velocity targets. It can be used also to support infantry in urban combat instead of

"forced allies"... at that times Even accepting Vz.58 rifle instead of AKs was quite an achievement. Maybe someone didnt know, but vz.58 assault rifle is externally similar to AKs but internally completely different and outperforms AKs in almost every way.
    Wooden "forward part" is now replaced by new with 4 accesory rails around the barrel.

    it fires exactly the same ammo like MLRS launcher. It uses container with six 227mm missiles - MLRS is using two similar containers. Quite inovative is a crane mounted on the vehicle which makes this vehicle more independent.
