    "THis is what happens when you dont PMCS your prime mover properly (Pintle Latch) and also dont hook up "Safety Chains" so that if the howitzer does detach from teh prime mover it doesnt do this!!!!"

    The section chief, chief of firing battery, X.O and B.C. have some serious explaining to do.

    Don't know if this qualifies as "gunner porn".

    love that first pic, probably the most "Diverse" gunline ever!!! A Canadian 81mm Mortar, a Canadian M777 and 2 Dutch PZH2000 all sitting at the end of the main runway at Kandahar. If I remember right that pic was taken in 08.

    Regards

    Second pic is interesting. The mounted bomblet shields. Camp is Taloqan i think. Guess they're still getting the odd mortar round or rocket in as counter-battery.

    Heck, where are the sights?

    And that's an artillery piece?

    How can it fire accurately with no spades?

    The system is the testbed for a mobile 155mm gun system built about 7 or 8 years ago by an Italian Army Arsenal, not by Iveco or OTO Melara. They used an old FH70 howitzer, wrapped it in some metal sheets for a turret, placed it on a traverse table and put it on one of the Centauro prototypes they still had around. The understanding at the time was that if such a system was procured, it'd use a XM777 instead of a FH70 and a Astra 8x8 truck instead of the Centauro, the testbed was mostly in showing off and giving the guys at the Arsenal something to do.

    Porcupine is the name for Oto Melara's C-RAM solution btw, not for any artillery system. This system consists of a 20mm gatling in a remote-controlled ground turret, and bears no resemblance to the above system. For some reason in particular among Chinese sources the name seems to be stuck to the above testbed though.

    I never cease to be amazed

    Well If you though a Howitzer lodged in the side of someones vehicle was bad take a look at this.

    Attachment 27359

    The word is however that they got it the right way up, performed a Fire Control Alignmnet verification. Performed af few other inspections, all was good and gun was shooting the next day!!!!!

    Now off course teh Crew has no idea how this happened. Apparently it "Just flipped over". Of course it did.

    Regards

    Arty, did they stay true to your sig line?

    @S2 - Yeah that was pretty much my reaction also. Now I can come up with scenarios involving excessive speed, rough terrain with ruts and rocks plus a sharp turn which if i really tried hard enough I might be able to replicate this event. What blows my mind is that nothing was damaged and they were able to get it flipped over without tearing of Sight Mounts etc. Thats an even more impressive feat.

    @Bigross - Yes they absolutely held true to that motto.

    Regards
