Just because...

4th Inf. Div.'s 1-12 Inf. and 2-77 FA team up to show new kind of presence at KAF.

Division, shoot a round down range from their M777A2 howitzer on Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, Aug. 22, 2014. The round was part of a shoot to register, or zero, the howitzers, which had just arrived on KAF from Forward Operating Base Pasab. The shoot also provided training for a fire support team from 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th IBCT, 4th Inf. Div. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Ariel Solomon/Released)


I hope they will at least bring the artillery home when we flee Afghanistan.

Not sure if it is a good or bad thing when you bring the guns in from the FOBs to one ofyour main bases, that is supposedly sort of kinda secure.  I guess we really worry when they start stockpiling flechette rounds.
The only times I've seen flames like that was when we'd swabbed the bore with bore-cleaner and immediately fired a round.
Shure, that was with 105s, but, same thing...
