When the first prototypes were created and shipped out to SLDF crews, they appreciated the reliability, ease of maintenance, and the spacious compartments for the crew. The only downsides the crews voiced about the machine were its lack of adequate protection and the lack of available ammunition; these were addressed and fixed once the ''Vali'' went into full scale production in [[2600]]. The upgrades that were made consisted of making the design hold five tons of ammunition and to beef up the armor to four tons which was enough to protect against counter-battery fire.<ref name=HLoTV2p138></ref>
The ''Vali'' was produced for more than fifty years and was a main stay in the forces of the SLDF through the twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth centuries. It fought all the way though [[Operation LIBERATION]], suffering the highest losses of any artillery units. It is unknown if any were taken with on [[Aleksandr Kerensky|Kerensky]]'s [[Operation Exodus|Exodus]], but each of the [[Successor States]] were able to take possession of many of the vehicles, that were abandoned due to ammunition shortages, and participated in the [[Succession Wars (History)|Succession Wars]].<ref name=HLoTV2p138></ref>
