Hi All,
I thought I would share a few photos of my US 155mm Howitzer being blank fired at a Military show here in England. I hope you enjoy the pictures?

Nice pics. Is there any movement under recoil?

Ever done that at night and gotten pics? Mr. Green

The Howitzer was last used during the Yugoslavian War in the early 1990s and the recoil mech was seized / stuck, by the end of the 3 day show things were moving and on the last day on the last shot we got 4 inches of recoil which is a great start.

That was the first time we fired it with a decent charge, I would like to get a evening or early morning photo. Its on my to do list
