SMES 2011 (2): XL-TB

Another vehicle display at SMES 2011 in Beirut was the Chinese made XL-TB, host vehicle for the SH2 Artillery System. The XL-TB can host 105mm and 122mm howitzers like the US M101 and the Russian D-30. The Lebanese Army tested the vehicle in early November (a photo was published already on the blog at that time) and got positive results. The XL-TB was armed with a Lebanese Army 122mm D-30 howitzer.
