Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Artillery is the "king of the battlefield".
easy way to get the spades dug in.
That gun really jumped on that shot.
Interesting: the max rate of fire on this M777 is 5 RPM. The 5"/38 we played with in the Navy was hand loaded, semi-fixed and fired at 15 RPM. Tony Canales and I did 22 RPM once but you're asking for problems. I need to find a video of this howitzer being loaded.
