M109A6 fires at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center.
The M109 was developed by BAE Systems Land and Armaments. The performance improvement of the M109A6 is comparable to that of the first self-propelled artillery over the preceding towed artillery, since the howitzers are not fixed, but may move with the combat forces. They need stop only when a target is identified. After firing on a target, the Paladin is immediately able to resume movement.
