A moment of Gunner Zen

 The Russians have made some damn fine artillery in their day.  Spank our ass at it.  With the exception of MLRS/HIMARS, our efforts in the field have largely sucked since the guns that served WWII retired.  We pretty much let the Brits design our guns these days.  H/t Kevin for the vid.


The US designed 105mm which we Canadian also used was a dam fine piece of kit, ours our finally wearing out after about 60 years of use.
Yes, yes it was.  And it lasted longer than most people realize in our service because it was the only gun that would function reliably up in Alaska.
