Army receives new self-propelled Howitzer

The first low-rate production M109A7 self-propelled Howitzer has been delivered by BAE Systems to the U.S. Army.

The M109A7 is a replacement weapon for the M109A6 self-propelled Howitzer, formerly known as the Paladin Integrated Management program, and will give the Army an indirect fire system capable of keeping pace with the Abrams tank and Bradley Fighting Vehicles.
