A moment of Gunner Zen

03/19/2013 - U.S. Army Master Sgt. Juan Gonzales fires a D-30 122 mm howitzer at the Kabul Military Training Center in Kabul, Afghanistan, March 19, 2013. The test fires were the final step before the refurbished weapon was put into active use. (DoD photo by Tech. Sgt. Joseph Prouse, U.S. Air Force/Released)


I am not sure how to react to this, a DOD photo with a caption that correctly identifies a piece of equipment, and a foreign piece of equipment at that.
The caption is probably Photoshopped ...

Dang! that's a long lanyard! Or did he fire it electrically? Whatever, it sure is purty.
