M109 Paladin Howitzer – Call For Fire Mission

M109A6 Paladin Howitzers from U.S. Army conduct call for fire missions during Exercise Eager Lion 2016 in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
The M109 is an American 155mm self-propelled howitzer, first introduced in the early 1960s. It has been upgraded a number of times, most recently to the M109A7. The M109 family is the most common western indirect-fire support weapon of maneuver brigades of armored and mechanized infantry divisions.
The M109A6 Paladin needs only a crew of four: the commander, driver, gunner and an ammunition loader.
