A moment of Gunner Zen

04/06/2013 - Afghan National Army soldiers with the 205th Corps fire a D30 122 mm towed howitzer during a live field artillery demonstration at Forward Operating Base Wolverine in Zabul province, Afghanistan, April 6, 2013. (DoD photo by Sgt. Ashley Bell, U.S. Army/Released)

The pic enlargifys.


That piece looks Russian, somehow.
Why are they wearing woodland camo ?  Are they going to invade Idaho ?

It looks Russian because it is - standard Russkie 122m towed howitzer.  The Afghan Army has mostly Russkie equipment.
