    American cannon like in the Civil War.With rope……

  2. Darkness99 says:

    It should be noted, that Gvozdika howitzer is considered obsolete, the current Msta-B has higher degree of automation, and the newly developed Koalitsia-SV has completely unmanned turret. The Paladin indeed looks WWI tech in this regard.

  3. Horse says:

    That is footage from the Artillery school at Fort Riley Kansas, not the current internal layout of the Paladin.

    The current system is much better, and faster.

  4. Nimi says:

    The rope is for extended safety. Using the rope to fire they ensure that nobody is behind the breach.

  5. Robot says:

    This is training with extremely new recruits. Also the replacement for the Paladin was cancelled. The replacement (Crusader) was mostly mechanized and could fire 12 rounds a minute and could land all rounds on the target at once. It was cancelled in 2002 because of support for the Future Combat System, which itself was cancelled in 2009. FCS was a dead end. Since ground units are protected via air cover 24/7 there is minimal needs for artillery since we can drop a bomb on a cricket’s ass from 40,000 feet, so field artillery is near obsolete.

      21st century brings such nasty stuff as A2/AD environment provided by multilayer AA systems (from “strategic” super long range SAMs to low-level SPAAGs). You won’t have 24/7 air cover in there. In fact, you won’t have any air cover within A2AD.

    Artillery will never be obsolete.

    As a retired veteran of the U.S. Army, I have witnessed more “near miss” accidents caused by USAF pilots than ever by artillery. I trust the gun bunnies far more than a bunch of zoomie pilots, most of whom think ground support missions are a slap in their face, and a career killer.
