The FH70 (field howitzer for the 1970s) is a towed howitzer in use with several nations.

In 1963, NATO agreed a NATO Basic Military Requirement 39 for close support artillery, either towed or tracked. Subsequently, Germany and UK started discussions and design studies and in 1968 established agreed operational characteristics for a towed 155 mm close support gun. Italy became a party to the agreement in 1970.

Key requirements were:

  • a detachable auxiliary power unit (APU)
  • an unassisted range of 24 km and 30 km assisted
  • a burst capability of 3 rounds in 15–20 seconds, 6 rounds per minute for a short period and 2 rounds per minute sustained
  • be able to fire all 155 mm munitions in NATO service, plus a new range of ammunition.
