Some random comments on reddit about U.S. Army soldiers firing a Howitzer in Afghanistan. [1200x823]
- Gunner1: 32? I thought you were 22?
- twenty to what? it's only 3:15!
- But I wanted water, why are you gonna make tea!?
- Just piss anywhere!
- Can someone with the proper knowledge explain about the different munition tips it looks like are threaded into the top of the projectile.
- The brass looking part is the fuse. The one with the loop at the top has the loop there for using cranes or 2 men and a pole. 155mm rounds weigh about 95lbs each, so if you have to move 100 of them it's a lot easier to use the loop than wreck your back. If you haven't had to load a paladin by hand from a pallet, you haven't experienced hell.
- Thanks for the explanation. Apparently it's just a fuse I was way off. 100lbs is a lot lighter than I thought. I know I wouldn't be saying that if I was holding it. Assuming you have had your hands on these thank you for your service.
- So you can have different types of fuses for different purposes, Impact, Area, timed, delayed(for bunkers), etc.
- /r/PerfectTiming would love this too.
- dat rubble shockwave im so army horny right now
- Thanks, just lost a half hour.
- Here's video of a HOWITZER team in action.
- The term "well oiled machine" springs to mind
- How does this work? To me it looks like the "powder charge" goes into the barrel before the round does.
- looks like new round is rammed in, powder inserted and then the next round is set on a tray or something behind the breach ready to be rammed in quickly after the previous round is fired.
- Ahh, ok, yeah, that would make sense. Thank you. 🙂 I'd love to see some footage from the point of view of the operators. Read more comments
