A long time in coming. The newer 64-ish caliber tube should do nicely in the M777ER and the M109A7 Palladin. Improvements in propellant and ammunition design make 100km ranges very plausible, with accuracy inside of one PEr.

Ask the French artillery commander at Dien Ben Phu how reverse slope factors and counter battery fire with greater range affects outcome


@SFC: Piroth didn't say much after that first big fight.

Once again artillery adds dignity to what would otherwise be a vulgar brawl.

Ulti- you're utterly correct!!! The French artillery commander ate a barrel after the first day of artillery exchange. Reading yours and other respondents on this site make me feel so semi-brilliant.


Say goodbye to the RAP round. Hadn't heard of this. Definitely looks like a great capability if a bit odd looking. Glad the Paladin is getting it, too.
