Excerpt: The 155mm L33 Argentine Model Gun (Argentine Army denomination: Can 155 mm. L 33 Modelo Argentino) is an Argentinian artillery field gun in service with the Argentine Army. Developed in late 1970s by CITEFA as obus 155 mm L33 X1415 CITEFA Modelo 77 in order to replace the WWII era M114 155 mm howitzer still in service in the Argentine Army.
