    As usual, great photos. It sure can be cold in Yakima. Looks it too. Hard not to look at YFC and think of Afghanistan. I've often thought how Oregon and Washington east of the Cascades suggest such. Probably a lot of our west actually.

    On the Excalibur shot, what's the device sitting on a box behind the breech with a cable attached?

    That device would be the EPIAFS (Enhanced Portable Inductive Artillery Fuze Setter).

    Basically the magic wand that can set any inductive fuze.

    At least "back in the day" they made sure that acronyms spelled out cool sounding names.

    We started down this road with HMMWV and haven't looked back.

    The HMMWV should have been the Big Assed Jeep and called a BADGE!

    German Army video on the two PzH 2000 at Kunduz, Afghanistan training (in German, ignore some of the byplay).

    3 min 42 s, available up to 1080p HD (!). Lots of inside operations shown. And a good dozen shots

    The 98s had HyPacs before I retired. But thats the first pic I've seen with that box. Is it the latest mod? Why put it there and take the A-gunners best place to sit down away?

    Did the first Hypak have batteries? Or did it only run from teh prime mover? If you note that box is mounted on Wire Rope Shock Isolators. Im sure there are two 12 Volt Marine Batteries in there.
