The GV(SPG)-2 Jabberwocky, an armoured gravimetric vehicle, is the primary self-propelled gun in use with the Imperial Army. Introduced in the early 1640's, it saw limited use in the Wars of the Dark Orchid whilst subsequently entering mass production as tensions with Jingdao escalated towards open warfare in 1647 and again after 1653.

The Jabberwocky replaced the obsolete 80mm field gun in the indirect fire support capacity which was in turn relegated to auxiliary forces, state militias and the armed forces of foreign clients.
