Army Projects / Re: M109A6 test bed for XM907 ERCA

It's nice to see these upgrades the might occur for the M109A7 but I still wonder at all of the compromises that must be made versus a "new" design for a self-propelled howitzer.

I've got to wonder if today's M109A7 have any part that is the same as the original M109? The turret was largely redesigned for the A6 and the hull is new for the A7.

Finally some  glimmer of range and reason. Missiles have there place but they are also a contractors wet dream and w/ less than positive payoff mostly. The first Gulf war was proof of that. Limited utility for the price.

Actually "steel rain" or "grid square killers" (MLRS) was very effective.
Said missiles not rockets there is a difference.
