National Guard receives new M109A7 Paladin
On 20-21 May, the 1st Battalion, 113th Field Artillery (FA) Regiment in 30th ABCT conducted an artillery live-fire exercise with the new equipment.
During the training, the soldiers had the opportunity to learn the difference between the old hydraulic system and the new electric system before heading to the range.
According to Shephard Defence Insight, the M109A7 reuses the turret and armament of existing M109A6 self-propelled guns, but mates them with a new hull that uses automotive and suspension components from the Bradley IFV and Armoured Multi-Purpose Vehicle.
