There was a Zoltam 155 in the vehicle deck of the BRP Davao Del Sur.  Anybody get a picture of it?
There is one in FB showing the 2016 stamp on the breech.  Anyone have any full pictures for the record?

Marine 155s have been photographed moving to Marawi.

With the howitzers already in Mindanao for the PN anniversary, makes sense to deploy them.
