Self-propelled artillery

Self-propelled artillery vehicles mount a large howitzer and are used for long-range indirect bombardment[?] support. Though lightly armored, and sometimes equipped with machine guns, they are not designed for direct-fire combat. They usually count as armoured fighting vehicles if they possess some kind of shrapnel protection for the crews.
