U.S. Army Artillery • Inside The M109A6 Paladin

Post by jfko6 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 10:10 pm

Scenes from inside the M109A6 Paladin howitzer during live-fire operation. The Paladin has 4 crew members: Commander, Driver, Gunner and Loader. It can travel at a maximum speed of 40mph, and can be fired in less than 60 seconds after it comes to a stop. The Paladin self-propelled howitzer has a firing range of 24 km using unassisted rounds or 30 km using assisted rounds. But some Paladins have been upgraded to fire the Excalibur GPS/extended-range projectile, which has a range of 40 km with an accuracy of 10 m. The Excalibur round was first deployed to Afghanistan in 2008.
