Michael Yon has a spectacular set of photos of an M777 howitzer battery in action at night.

Thanks to Lazarus, who corrected my misidentification of the howitzer model.

A small error, I think. The M119 is a 105mm weapon and the piece in the article is firing 155mm ammo. It might be an M777 gun. It has been a while since my pants had Red Legs.

You must be right. I figured it was a 105mm because it was a towed piece.
