Long Description:
This Chinese version of Soviet-designed S-60 was liberated by USAF Airlift Control Element (ALCE) members from Dover AFB in 1991 during Operation Desert Storm.

After the artillery piece was captured during the reopening of the airport in Kuwait City, it was used as a flagpole for the American flag by the ALCE.

When the unit returned to Dover, Lt. Col. Gary Kerstetter, the ALCE commander, presented the S-60 to the museum on behalf of the men and women of Operation Desert Storm.
