The 2S7 Pion ("peony") or Malka is a Soviet self-propelled 203mm heavy artillery. It was identified for the first time in 1975 in the Soviet Army and so was called M-1975 by NATO (the 2S4 Tyulpan also received the M-1975 designation), whereas its official designation is SO-203 (2S7). It uses originally designed chassis (partly based on T-72 and T-80 design) carrying an externally mounted 2A44 203 mm gun on the hull rear.
